Gorgeous day -- perfect for yard work. I raked the garden, spread the manure, put up the fence poles. Just as I was about to plant the seeds, it occurred to me that rain is predicted starting tonight and for several days, with temperatures in the 60s. I don't want to seeds to rot, so I decided to wait on planting until next week, when hopefully it will be warmer and it won't be so rainy. The only seeds I planted were zinnias, near the sidewalk. I also put the extra time to good use and weed whacked. It is overcast now, and I think our beautiful weather is over. I hope to get to the nursery this weekend, since I need deer netting (more to protect against rabbits) and window box plants.
