Since I got paid on Friday, I decided to splurge a bit and buy some annuals for the garden. Came home from Ricky's with some snapdragons, marigolds and portulacas. The portulacas made me particularly happy, as they remind me of the house in Eastie - probably the nicest place I ever lived in Boston.
Anyway, spent yesterday spiffing up the place - deadheading, pruning, planting - in time for some shebang the landlord's having tonight. Collapsed afterward from a bit too much sun and too much pressure on the lower back.
It DOES look nice, though.
