Lots of indoor time this week. Sophie Doodle and I go outside, but only for a bit because of the oppressive heat and humidity. As I write, it is 82 degrees with a humidity level of 77%. We come inside and plan our next foray outside. Yesterday Sophie went to the groomers. She looks so much cooler now. I love to let her hair be a bit longer, she looks more like her Berner self, but it just isn't fair to her in this hot weather. She also took a trip to our locally owned Seed and Feed store. It is pet friendly and she is always the center of attention, and lots of treats, when we visit!
The rose bush I bought before the 6" of rain was planted last night. After an hour break, landscape fabric and mulch were added. A trip to the garden store is planned for today because I ran out of mulch. When my favorite farmer's parents built the house back in 1972, river rock was the rage in landscaping circles. Actually, it is a pain in the hind end. The rocks and the landscaping plastic have been removed but I found the soil is rampant with tiny rocks. I hope my rose survives the rocky soil.
