Day 2 - Wednesday - We woke up to glare of a wonderful sunny day but couldn't look out at all.The weather was absolutely perfect for the project as there was a light breeze and no humidity. How lucky we all were!
The work was started at 7am and the day became became hot! We learned that he incorporates a special insect repellent in the stain. He plugged all of the carpenter bee holes and will hang two traps when staining is finished. A couple of places were caulked as well.
Day 3 - Thursday - We are almost all finished with putting things back. What a wonderful change for the old place with the much-needed renewal. This worker was one of the most courteous, diligent, knowledgeable and skillful employees the log maintenance business could ever find to do this type of project. His work was done with pride and neatness.
Now I plan to plant some flowers in front after the daffodil leaves have drained back into the bulbs and can be cut off.
Daffodil leaves should not be cut back until after they have turned yellow. Daffodils use their leaves to create energy, which is then used to create next year's flower. If you cut back daffodils before the leaves have turned yellow, the daffodil bulb will not produce a flower next year.
