finally took the time this morning to hook up the splitter for the garden hose… now I can either run water into the regular hose, or into the hose that goes underground to the pond… will make it much easier to fill it when it is low… which, sadly, is still happening on a regular basis, but at least the waterfall is beautiful, lol…

new hose hook-up...

was quite easy to do, but did make me feel that I was wearing my big girl pants

later the kids came over and we left my grandson to work on the front flower bed and went to a couple of garden centres to see what they might have…

had a lot of fun…

got two amazing baskets which are adding to the beauty of the pergola by the pond…

morning glory and parsley...

and a number of other plants… happily was able to get a couple of morning glories as, of the two packages of seeds I planted, about three have come up and they are very small… these ones are my favourite blue and I can hardly wait until they start blooming…

also picked up three parsley plants… monarch caterpillars love parsley and my grandson spotted a couple on the parsley plant at their house… hope I get some too

while they were here, the little boys cut some roses for me… they are from the plants that my dear friend and neighbour Ellen gave me when she moved…

I do love the garden and really appreciate having my grandson come and help me on a regular basis…

just got everything planted when the sky clouded over and thunder, lightening and rain came down… hope that everything survives the downpour
