this morning I watered everything in the garden and finished filling the pond… it has been very warm and was going to continue that way today… all the plants were parched… had wondered why it had taken so long to fill yesterday and realized that both taps were open so it was trying to send the water down two hoses at the same time…

  
as I was watering, the pond stopped running again… big problem… waited for it to fill up but it didn’t start even with lots of water in it… lifted the float and nothing happened… uh oh… thought I was going to have to call my son-in-law to come and figure it out, sigh…

then I realized that the second pump had stopped as well, so I ran downstairs and checked the fuses… they were all fine… took out the plugs and tried to reset the power box… didn’t work… tried one more time and success… felt very big girl pant ish and rather proud of myself for figuring it out… still going when I got home… yay me…

  
also spotted two frogs in the bathtub pond beside the garage… very exciting to see them, but worried that they might not be able to get out… now I like frogs but I have no plan to pick them up, lol… think tomorrow I will search out a board I can put into the pond that will offer a path for them to use to get out… I’d love them to stay but don’t want them to be trapped…

the mandevilla is enjoying the heat…

  
took the hot peppers to the office so someone would use them, lol…

  
lots going on in the garden
