Fall Project Day 4

Some of the not-fun stuff.

I knew there would be some painfully tedious bits to get through.  Today is one of them:  pulling out the old low-voltage lighting.  Eccch.  Dull indeed.  I distracted myself at every opportunity.  

Don't want to dig up old lighting.  Go feed the koi.

Ah, the Agave maybe-ellemeetiana has grown since I bought it.

Back in April, it looked like this:

Don't want to dig up old lighting.  Go sniff the sweet fragrance of 'Aimee Vibert'.

Don't want to dig up old lighting.  Go try to get an accurate photo of 'Prospero's rich color.  Hmm.  Not quite.

Hey, it's overcast...how does Echeveria 'Imbricata' look in overcast?

A week ago, the Tagetes lemonii had not a single flower blooming.

I did move the tomato-patch Oak seedling to a spot out front.  Better than yanking on that buried lighting wire.  Digging down about 18" ensured I got all of the baby Oak's tap root.  Now, possibly the Oak will grow and thrive.  I've just given a seedling its chance to try to live gloriously for centuries.  Our native Oaks can live for five hundred years.

Mixed in with all the tedium, a reach for meaning, a hope for significance.  Isn't a day in the garden like life itself?

  1. That is excellent boring job avoidance.

  3. About to finish weeding / spraying (ugg), get to the soil amendments (fun), and then my own LV lighting (more ugg). But when the lights work again, ahhh!

    Nice progress, both in labor and seeing the fall plants go crazy.

  4. I've put off the low voltage lighting for at least 5 years. I don't even know if my transformer still works. I remember how proud I was after installing it all by myself.I've been neglectful. Shame.
