The weather cooperated with nice cloudy days perfect for outdoor gardening.
My weekend project consisted of cleaning up my side garden. This is the garden that is most visible from my living and dining room area. The garden is nestled between two tall houses making the area very challenging for gardening. The amount of sunlight is very limited especially in the winter and water tends to run off from other parts of the garden.
Overall I did some cleaning up, weeding, mulching and added impatiens, begonias and petunias for color (should be in full bloom by Thanksgiving). I also cleaned up the stones and pebbles; this section was totally messed up by the construction this summer.
This weekend I went to see the movie “Into the Wild” the true story of Christopher McCandless a 24-year-old Virginian and Emory graduate that hitchhiked to Alaska after graduating from college and set off into the wilderness with little more than a-.22-caliber rifle and a 10-pound sack of rice. He set up camp in an abandoned bus and lived there for months; the story is about a young man who wanted to go out into the world free of responsibilities, experience life and how it ended. Sean Penn directed the movie and the cinematography is spectacular, those of us that enjoy the outdoors this is a most see. The movie is based on the book “Into the wild” by John Krackower
