Gardening on St. Patrick’s Day

LOCATION:  In our tiny house in Mission, Texas
WEATHER:  Cool!  High 60

A cold front came in and cooled things down very quickly.  The wind was brisk, too.  I took a 5-mile walk and it was fine until the last leg, when I had to face into the strong wind from the NW.  An Alberta Clipper! 

I took advantage of the cool weather and did some gardening.  Our back area is looking good…

I replanted some cacti that survived during our absence….

And, the “agave garden” out front is really looking good.

This area in front is full of flowering lantana.  Last year, we thought it was all dead, but it came back beautifully…

I did some computer work, continuing our summer planning, with our Nova Scotia friends Tony and Jenny.  We are finalizing our Quebec plans for early June.

DINNER:  St. Patrick’s Day celebration!  We went to our friends’ house for corned beef, cabbage and potatoes, and Irish whiskey!  It was great.
