Covid-19 Construction (1)
All of this time, however, I've neglected to share how Himself is coping with All Of This.
A confirmed introvert close to the far end of the scale, Joe has reveled in the quiet! He's gardened extensively. He's nearly finished the second super-difficult 1000-piece jigsaw puzzle. He's read up a storm. He has made more ice cream than Baskin Robbins, and in better flavors, too. Recently, he and Blackberry took up construction and woodworking again.
The picture above is of the new arbor/trellis that they are constructing for the back yard. There is more to go. There are trellises to be affixed. Then the Hyacinth Beans that Kristina shared with us so many years ago will be planted yet again. The hope is that these fast-growing vines will cover the lattice before long.
There is a similar structure on the side yard (near the vegetable garden) where the red raspberries will be tempting the deer. A barrier of some sort is in the planning stages. Again, there are beaucoup blossoms.
The black raspberries didn't survive.
