Garden good news bad news

I’m digging up my flower bed because someone told me to divide my tulips.

Good news, almost every bulb had 2-3 babies 🙂
Bad news, I’ve found 4 bulbs full of grubs and tons of grubs in the soil.

I’m pulling out all the good bulbs and I’m going to treat the ground with grub killer and then replanted them all. I also got all my crocus planted, I used drinking straws to mark where they are so I could make a ‘random’ pattern. I tried to just toss them out and plant them where they fell but they are tiny and the same color as leaves so I would toss then have to play find the bulb. Some lucky squirrel will get a few that I could not find… I even planted a dozen in my across the street neighbors flower bed so she will get a little surprise in the spring.

This is fiction and it is really good.

Get going on the next section you lazy girl!!!

Good Crown News

It was a not so bad 4 hour drive there and back yesterday. The event site had a big snow storm the night before so I’m glad we missed that but all the streetsigns were covered in snow from the direction we were driving so I sat backward (I wasn’t driving) to read signs as we passed them.

The site was a good size, the changing rooms were locker rooms so that was good too. All my friends were nervous and I got some second hand nerves from them too. Finally at the end of the 3 hour (felt like 10) tournment Hroder won for Giulia!!! People kept asking if it was my turn to be her chamberlain, since she was mine, but nope – Sb is doing it and I am company and friend. I’m sure I’ll be pitching in plenty since Sb needs to finish constructing her house soon.

Today the weather is nice so I am off to plant tulips and crocus and trim some trees. Then I will be studying for a midterm.
