Maintenance mode continues amid high temperatures and final revisions to the Ethics Guide.

I dead headed the front slope geraniums, and emptied the remains of a bag of Preen mulch around the coleonema.

The special monkey flower at the far end of the back garden is sickly.  I changed the flag dripper to a bubbler hoping to direct more water to the plant.  The white lantana seems to be taking hold.  Weeding is becoming my life’s work.

I will sit in the summer house in the mornings and look out over the land.  Just the other side of the retaining wall I saw the first matilija poppy bloom appear, on the newest plant.  I catch the resemblance to a fried egg without straining too hard.
