Fall Planting

So on this glorious fall day, I spent part of the day planting daffiodil bulbs....and not just a few, but 300. This was in addition to the 400 I panted on Columbus Day. I had help from my friend, Bev Medlin.

I met Bev years ago when our kids were on the same US swim team. She was a devoted volunteer then and is still a hard-working individual now. Bev has vast experience in landscaping and volunteered to help me plant my bulbs. Believe it or not, it took about 2 1/2 hours on Monday and 1 3/4 hours today to get all 700 bulbs snuggly planted in the ground. Unfortunately, now I have to wait approximatley 4500 hours (6 months) to view the results of our labors.

Bev recently returned from a safari in East Africa and her hike up Mt. Kilamanjaro. The following photo shows her at the peak, I believe. When I asked her how the hike was in terms on difficulty, I was not surprised by her answer....she thought they walked a bit slowly and even asked if she could carry more packs (to make it more challenging) Enough said, here's Bev....she's the one in blue!


I am very happy to have reconnected with her. She is a wonderful person.
