Well, the muse still alludes me but I haven't been idle. I took last weekend and reworked my orchid arbor. Many of you know I am an avid gardner as well which is my other stress reliever:) So rather than brood over the inability to tap something worthy into my laptop, I began my Saturday at Home Depo and purchased my needs to begin my much needed arbor refurbish project. I'd moved many of the plants out the week before and cleaned up the area so it would be easier to work within the space off my patio.
I replaced the dilapidated bamboo reed fencing, cleaned plants of dead roots and leaves, etc., repotted them with new orchid media, and moved onto placing them neatly into the arbor. Finished off with cypress mulch and my statuary and ornamentation and voila! my beautiful and peaceful escape is complete.
I love to sit on my patio and gaze at the arbor and my spacious backyard. It is so relaxing. The birdsong, the fresh air, blue skies, all that green!
