I ran a test of my sprinkler system yesterday. I noticed one shooting water out the line onto the fence. Not the way it’s supposed to go. I thought I would just get back there and fix that.
As usual, things are not always as easy as they appear at first glance.
Plants had grown, some had died, and let’s not forget the really enormous giant bird of paradise plant … immovable, too … that stood guard in front of where I needed to go.
I had to prune my way in. I guess I had an allergic reaction to something? I’m guessing it was the pony tail palm trees?
I’m not really sure, but around bedtime last night, I decided to actually pay attention to the itching I was feeling on my arms and actually LOOK at them, instead of just putting cold water on them. Goodness. Luckily I found some hydrocortisone cream, and by this morning the swelling had gone down.
Next time, I’ll maybe put on gloves.
Yeah, probably not. I’ll just look earlier.
