I seem to remember a conversation with a neighbor last year about all these wonderful gnats that swarm around people’s heads this time of year. The neighbor told me that it gets bad when they till the fields down the road. All I know is that the fields ain’t tilled and there are a whole bunch of gnats bothering the heck out of me. At least they disappear around here fairly quickly. We have lived places where they didn’t disappear…ever. Well, in winter they did.
I set the hammock up again this afternoon. This will be the third time I set it up, and when I say “set it up,” I mean, take it from the garage and hang it on the tree. It takes about 30 seconds. The reason I set it up is because it was really nice today. I played a little tennis this morning up at the school and got all sorts of beat up. I have a feeling that I wasn’t trying as hard as I should have been. I was just trying to run around a lot. Anyway, after I set up the hammock and layed around for a while, I decided to go inside to get the camera. There are tons of little plants sprouting up all over the place in the new garden in the back. It’s really wonderful.
I was going to take two pictures, but I ended up with nine. They are pretty good, so I think you’ll get a kick out of them. I looked up most of them so I could place plant names with the photos, but I am missing two. One is a “succulent” type of a plant and the other looks like cabbage, but that’s all I know. They really aren’t big enough to tell what they are.
Here are the plant photos.
