Planted the new bed
Hoping for summer flowers
For bunnies and Tim.
Recipe: 1 shovel, use it to turn a bunch of soil below the root lines of the dandelions. Reset the bricks that make up the rudimentary flower bed and spread the soil around. Plant the seeds. Place the cast iron rabbits and the gnome (named after Leary) with the giant mushroom where they can keep an eye on progress.
Review/notes: Tiger is a good Indian lager, heavy and bitter and precisely what you want on a warm afternoon. They serve it at the Mela each year, too.
