Yesterday I worked out here. This morning, up early, I poured my coffee,
sat on the front porch and just enjoyed the view.
Then of course I grabbed a camera and took some photos as the
sun peeked through the humid morning air.
Mother Nature certainly worked hard whilst we were gone for
three weeks. Apparently there was lots of rain, then hot temperatures,
meaning nonstop growing and blooming. As I write this, mid-afternoon,
the temp. is 90F but feeling like 99F with the humidity, it's scorching out there.
Thunderstorms later according to those who supposedly know about weather.
Kind neighbors mowed the grass while we were gallivanting
around Ireland. Bob mowed yesterday while I did a lot of clean up, pruning,
watering etc. Now I need to shop for some Summer annuals for pots.
I was not really expecting the hydrangeas to get this huge as in early
Spring they looked somewhat thin and sad. You can imagine my
delight to come home to this magnificent show of blue among all the
We already spy many, many figs. . . . . guess I'll be making jam again come late Summer!
View this morning from my wicker chair on the porch.
I have lots more to share with you from Ireland.
Life is busy right now as we get ourselves organized and settled
into some semblance of normal routine.
Thanks for all your kind comments on my recent Ireland posts - I'll catch up
with you soon.
