Porte Photo’s Daily Quote: October5, 2022

I learned hard lessons in life;
I had to because I had so much happen:
My mother died my sophomore year in high school.
The next year, same day, my brother dropped dead.
Two years after that, I got married because my girlfriend got pregnant.
The year after my wedding, my father – who I had only recently met – died.

Porte Musings:

Wow this weather is amazing. Today’s going to be another perfect fall day with a high of about 20C. I’m planning on going kayaking. I bought a spice bush, cardinal flowers, butterfly weed, blue lobelia, and a butterfly bulb collection to create a small butterfly garden. I also laid newspaper around the plants and woodchips then watered well. Next spring I’ll add dill and parsley. I love butterflies and my garden was getting tired so it was time to spice it up a bit and make it a bit tidier. Hopefully the newspaper and woodchips help keep the weeding down. I am getting older and hate weeding now more than ever.

Morning glories have taken over my front gardens. It’s almost Halloween. Once Halloween is over I’ll tear down the decorations. Time to paint some Halloween themed paintings. 😉
