This weekend we had consecutive days of dry sunny weather so we waterproof the deck using 5 gallons of an oil based clear waterproofing. All told there was 1,145 square feet of deck floor and stairs, not counting the railings.
After waterproofing the deck Kathryn, the dogs and I took a short walk around our woods to check out the elderberries. The dogs are always glad to go for a walk. Cullen is particularly happy since he found the deer bones 1st.
Kathryn checks out the elderberry bushes along the north trail. It seems the fruit is sparse and small.
The catnip behind the ear is effective vs. mosquitoes, but not deer flies.
Back home we sat on the porch for a bit while the dogs cooled down.
