Thursday was a complete wash out and we did not have any work, the sky is just very, very dark and it is raining like crazy, again. Friday, the weather forecast is for the sun to show up, heat up all of this moisture, so we can have thunderstorms this afternoon. Well, we will have a little sunshine today anyway.
We are back at the house of the President of Olin college to finish up the weeding there. Guillerme and I had it all done by 10:30 Am and then it was off to a property in Wellesley to do some more weeding. All of this rain has developed a healthy crop of weeds and once the sun returns there are going to be even more.
At the house in Wellesley, we looked out in the back yard and there was a deer, munching on some green apples that had fallen down from the rain. I was lucky enough to get my camera and get this picture.
This morning it is so dark, that you know it is going to rain any minute. Guillerme and I went to the home occupied by the President of Olin College, because the Presidents wife, just loves her flower gardens and wants them to always look nice........that means weeded on a regular basis.
Guillerme and I could only weed one of the beds in front of the house before the heavens opened up and that was it for today. Mother nature is not being nice to us landscapers this June. Oh, well time for some CRAVE energy drink and then I am off to work on my home biz, thank goodness for that.
I went with Guillerme and Kessio to finish up the trim job we started a week ago, but due to the rain we have not had a chance to get back to it. I had to train Guillerme on how to trim using the power shears we have. My patience is tested to the limit during these period, as mistakes will happen. I just have to be calm and use the mistakes as tools to teach what is the correct way and what is not.
We just had to trim up the bushes in the front of the house and the one way out back. The picture shows our finished work there. Guillerme did a pretty decent job for his first time shearing. He needs practice and it will soon be trimming season and he will get a LOT of practice.
When we finished there, we headed over to the home occupied by the President of Babson College to do some weeding as, we had not been there for awhile due to the rain. As I was working in one perennial flower bed, something moved, I thought it was a snake, but it turned out to be a baby bunny, which I took a picture of. I did not bother him and continued weeding and then I came across his 2 other siblings. Well that was it, I stopped my work because we never bother animals we find out in nature. They were just so little and so cute, and the other guys took pics with their camera phones.
