This is what I've been doing the past few days - planting, weeding, cooking, computer and paper work and getting the house ready for house guest arrival at the end of the week.
The clematis on the right is one of 3that I planted last summer and they are doing great. I was concerned about them because of the water holding quality of our pure clay soil; but the mushroom compost I added, plus the minerals of all that clay seems to be making them very happy. The other two are even lusher and taller than this one.
The sourdough starter I fed this morning is now well activated, so it's time to get my nutty fruity bread started. Then I'll be off to plant the last few annuals, before coming in for lunch and then making pizza dough for dinner. Needless to say, studio time will probably just have to wait till guests leave next week.
