Every day for quite a few days has been beautiful,
delightful and perfect weather.
Not to warm of days and cool at night
and this one sometimes puts on long sleeves.
Wrote this post several days ago and now it has
turned super hot again and to continue. Just watered
as the rain expected never arrived. The soil in my garden
and the woods seems to dry out quickly.
Think heat has set in and garden losing the beauty of the last few months.
Enjoyed my Jamie and little girls on Sunday.
Amazed at the change in them from month to month
and guess grandma will always refer to them as her little girls
Continual laughter and they are just plain "happy." Their visits too short and
far between but very aware of their city life with soccer, gymnastics, cheer leading, music
lessons, swimming and friends - their pleasure at this time.
More exciting then hanging out with grandma in the woods...
Jamie, took several bags of herbs back home and is going to share with some friends.
I need to begin freezing herbs by chopping and putting in ice cube trays, cover
with water, freeze and then transfer to bags for the freezer, so easy to season food during the
year with this method.
Summer is going by so quickly and can hardly believe 1/2 the year is past. This is very evident
in my garden with day lilies in their last days and many other favorites now gone until
another year. Phlox are blooming
shared with me and now have the beginning of this old fashion plant in yellow, white and purple.
hollyhock that came up this Spring with
giant leaves and flower about the size of a silver dollar.
It should be reversed.
When I lived in the city home
my daughter who lived in Massachusetts shared some seeds.
the flowers were double and gigantic
and not so at this time....
Noticing very few butterflies this year,
a lot is different in nature and will probably continue.
