Hard to believe there are places down here in the high desert where there isn’t enough sunshine but there are! I am intent on growing some climbing roses that can eventually grow up their arbor-trellis into a brighter light, but to get them that far I HOPE I am giving them the assistance they need. I would trim some tree limbs that are blocking the east morning light from the new rose bed, but I can’t do that on my own. So, here’s my solution!
Then there’s the magical adobe chicken coop growing into its future life. From three sides the coop will look very short, but I am digging out its guts on the inside to make it tall enough for the roost, laying boxes, and ME to stand up in – of course using the dirt to make the blocks. Today the mud has to rest — dry — strengthen, so I will be making blocks on the ground rather than pouring-patting them into place upon the wall.
