The usual suspects were waiting!
Our return and activity in the garden doesn't seem to bother them one bit.
Robins and rabbits!
They obviously get along well.
There are dozens of robins, adults and juveniles (spotted breasts) all over
the lawn visiting the fig tree, filling their faces and tummies with the now
ripening figs from the gigantic Celeste fig tree.
Fruits knocked to the ground are being gobbled by a mama rabbit and
her baby who has grown quite a bit in the time we were away.
Today we rehung the bird feeders - as always the cardinals arrived first followed
by the squirrels! The weather is unbearably hot, heat index reached 105F
yesterday, thankfully a little cooler today.
The garden is parched and much is very sad looking despite my kindly
neighbor's watering efforts. After a week loving the gardens of cooler
New England, I'm wondering what the heck I'm doing here in the south
trying to be a 'gardener' in summertime! It's just not worth the effort once
the heat and humidity arrives.
Heading to the farmers market this morning for fresh eggs and veggies.
Must admit that I truly enjoyed not having to cook for over a week. . . . .
having done so almost every day since the pandemic reared its ugly head!
Have a wonderful weekend friends.
