Fountain of youth...

Today, we went to the gym....yup the gym. Left a bit sore, not bad, just knew that we had gone to the gym.
Then, we took the dogs for a walk, our usual 3/4 of a mile walk. Then, we went to the market. No wait. We had the door bell ring...with something we didn't expect for a few days yet. There on the doorstep was a huge box, it made it almost impossible to leave for the market. So, we opened it. It was the fountain we ordered on Amazon.

It is reconstituted granite with resin, so it is a 1/3 the weight of a stone fountain. Which is good, because it weighed plenty!
It is awesome! The sound of water from the fountain is very soothing and just draws you out on the patio. Perfect. It was an awesome price...Did you know you can find most anything on Amazon?? Yes, you can. Shop and get to know everything about the items you are looking for, then shop Amazon...you will find bargains!
So, after the shopping that occurred after putting the fountain together, I started gardening...it was a beautiful day. I worked in the veggie garden and cleaned it up and planted some lettuce and cucumber seeds.
This is the "old veggie" garden behind this picket fence...here it was, protected from the dog and kids...Today, it is more shaded from neighbor's trees, so I grow lettuces, cukes and a few things here and there....
Then I just "played" in the garden....


After all that play, I worked on some roses out front that were suffering from rust, which being near the coast is not at all uncommon....This rose you see is "Black Magic" (Jackson & Perkins) which is in the backyard. These almost never need anything...the most wonderful rose...very hardy...not like the ones out front....
So, that is how I spent my day....How did you spend your day??
