This afternoon, Mom and I worked in the garden quite a while again and then decided to take a break from that and to plant our flower bed with the flowers we got from 2 different families who grew them from seed. I tilled the area up and then arranged the flowers and spaced them and Mother worked on planting them. I helped her when I finished with my job...
It's hard to see in the picture here, but we planted Petunias, Black Eyed Susans, Moss Roses, and a little pink flower which I'd never seen before and which I'm not remembering the name of currently.
Right before supper, Andrew got out the lawn mower he had been working on a while back (someone gave it to us, as there was a hole in the side of the motor--which he patched somehow) and he put the "Blade assembly" (or whatever that's called?) back on and took it for a spin... It worked really well and he was able to cut the grass faster with this mower than we could with either of our other rider mowers! Great work, brother!
It rained tonight, so we won't be doing too much haying; gardening; or mowing anytime real soon. It came just in time for a good day's rest!
