We have kind of settled on a Fairy Garden, so the above photo shows the preliminary arrangement. On hand, I had the container, ground cloth and figurine, however, it was necessary to purchase the plants, activated charcoal and cacti and succulent planting mix. Making a short trip to the local reservoir, I was able to collect several niece pieces of drift wood for accent pieces, so on her next visit we will put the finishing touches on the garden.
At this point the olive and fig trees are still in the greenhouse getting their chill, and last night they got a good one, as the temperature went down to twenty degrees F. Even with the heat on low the water in the watering bucket had ice on it this morning.
Last Thanksgiving we had a snow storm, but this year the forecast is for the temperature to be a mild fifty degrees or so.
We have had several calm sunny days, which were ideal for getting in a few more drone flights before the weather turns nasty.
I wanted to take a photo of my drone in flight, but when I returned home and was putting the drone away I found that while I was photographing the drone, the drone was photographing me.
