Why is the very first post of any blog you do the most daunting? At any rate,it's been a mix of yardwork,running my online biz,and reuniting with my 6 string Estrada Banjo. I have a 5 string that's been in a storage unit for years,am hoping to get it out soon,but as it's in the very back of the unit I'm having to wait until friends & family are in the mood for an excavation to go get it. Items in front of it are simply too big & too heavy for me to move on my own. However,I am enjoying rediscovering the 6 string after not playing it for a long time. And it's nice to see my guitar playing skills aren't going to waste. I play mandolin,uke and am learning fiddle,plus knocking around with tinwhistle. So refreshing to find so many people are multi instrumentalists here at Banjo Hangout.
Gardening wise I had purchased 4 bare root roses at Big Lots of all places,and they did an additional $1 discount in order to move em out quickly. Much to my surprise,all 4 are now thriving and this one is a spectacular color. A deep red rose was pictured on the bag but this looks like a deep apricot color. I'll have to post a pic so you all can see it. Another activity I enjoy is feeding hummingbirds. I'm looking forward to getting to know the people here,so don;t be afraid to say hi! I'm also on Twitter @MandolinChick.
