Cactus Monday / an Oldie

Since I have no new art to show I thought of this reprise after reading Teri's post today.
Still busy time for art.
Hope in October all will be finished and live will be back to normal.
But don't feel sorry for me. I am grateful to feel I have lots of energy again. After a tough half year  I am completely recovered and feeling great again. I am enjoying the process of the renovation. 
Today I worked in my garden.
 Workers came to do work for a pavement.
 I moved all my hydrangeas 
 Moved them over here, together with 6 m³ of soil.
 After replanting I pruned them
here is the pile.....

I am very happy with the results. We were so lucky with the weather today, a lovely sunny day!
 Tomorrow my day will be easier, I will continue to clean up inside here.

Happy Cactus Monday!


  1. Goodness Marianne, You are being creative in a whole other way. How exciting to be able to remodel your house and garden at the same time. Your new hydrangea bed looks marvelous. An awful lot of work but it is paying off in beautiful surroundings. HCM.

  2. marianne, i just love making changes in the yard! it's great to see more of where you live and how exciting what you've done. hydrangeas are so tolerant and reliable, just like my zinneas!
