So since the dishwasher is out of play...

... I spent the day gardening. I removed the old bark from the flower bed out front and started digging holes to plant flowers. Ugh. Disaster. Turns out that at some point in the past a tenant had ornamental rocks in the flower bed out front, then at some *later* point soil got put on top of the ornamental rocks, then bark got put on top of the soil... so anyhow, ended up moving a lot of dirt around to get most of the rocks out. But I got about half the flowers planted today and fresh bark spread amongst them, it looks good, a lot better than tired old bark with weeds growing inbetween, hopefully will be able to finish planting the rest later.

Off to go grocery shopping...

- Badtux the Tired Penguin


  1. I'd be careful. Your bourgeois life-style may be corrupting you.

  2. I am imminently corruptible, for the appropriate sums of money. Heck, at work they even pay me enough to write software on *Microsoft* platforms, despite me being, err, a Linux penguin!

  3. Tux -

    This is crying out for photography.


  4. JzB, I ran out of daylight, and haven't seen daylight since due to things at work. So you'll just have to use your imagination and imagine yellow marigold-like flowers approximately 1 inch across on stalks around 8 inches tall, placed 10 inches part with a spray of green leaves, in a setting of redwood bark.
