Drill, baby drill

My very first drill-- a somewhat momentous occasion.

Buying one has always been on my list of to-dos, and now is no longer. After taking a look at the patio garden, I spied that hypertufa planter I made years ago. I had such high hopes for it. Perhaps it would best be used if the plants inside weren't perpetually waterlogged?

Exhibit A: learning about all of the special bits and finding the right one...

Exhibit B: ta-da! Succulents comfortable in their hypertufa trappings...

Now that the sun has unleashed all that it possibly can upon us, (or so we think), we've stopped whining about those overcast, dappled sunlight days, the scattered morning mist and showers. It's here, that third season that could last through-- who knows... September/October?

In my pond, the wasps are bathing. I'm ready to dive in myself...
