Lately, I seem to run out of time to write here, and to comment - forgive me.
It's just amazing how suddenly the garden awakes and there is so much to do
to keep ahead of overgrowth and weeds. With no rain we've also had to water
as the afternoon temperatures are really hot.
We spend a lot of time outside, then in the afternoons collapse on the porch
with a cup of tea, then in to make supper.
Not only a lot of pinks and purples blooming, plenty of green also
Bob is mowing this early morning before it gets too hot - high 82F later!
Note the urn with small conifer in top left - my favorite Carolina wren pair
have a nest in there. The fig tree is almost completely leafed out as
you can also see in that same photo.
There are hundreds of these sprouting oak trees to pull out this year!
Jasmine on the back fence just opening gorgeous yellow blooms.
Trumpet vine in all its glory on the side arbor.
Luscious, local, freshly picked strawberries enjoyed this week.
Will pop over to the farm stand for more later today.
A homemade strawberry rhubarb galette comes to mind!
