He was back yesterday. . . . . the little green gecko who seems to have taken up
residence on and around the front porch. I think he lives in a large pot planted with ivy.
It's snugged up against one of the huge hydrangea bushes under which I've placed
a shallow 'bee bath'. He probably drinks and bathes there when the bees are off
doing what honey bees do.
Who knows. It was the first name that came to mind as I watched him move silently
across the porch rail in the heat of the day.
The garden is quiet under the blazing sun, but I do hear baby birds - mostly cardinals
who now are raising their second brood. The parents seem to keep them underneath
the shrubs in the shade.
Such sensible birds.
Today Bob has gone out early - 8:00 am - to mow the lawn as it will be another scorcher.
Thunder showers are possible this afternoon and evening but I'll be out there
watering the pots this morning to keep things going until/if rains do arrive.
This will be a sandwiches and soup day. I'm just totally burned out regarding
cooking and need a break from the kitchen.
I'm thinking a picnic for the weekend. Just a little drive somewhere with
a change of scenery as we've not been anywhere for so long. Throw down a
blanket, open the plastic bottle of rosé - actually French believe it or not - and
munch on something simple, cool and summery.
Do you have weekend plans?
Have a good time and stay safe.
