All of these products will be used before the day is over for sore muscles from raking, moving around and spreading heavy mulch bags, trimming butterfly bushes, digging to plant pansies and basically getting my yard ready for spring when WINTER decides to let go 🌸Nontoxic
Raises my frequencies
I swear this is a female bug with PMS
See that pointed finger!?!? 😆
Puppy is playin I SPY
Do ya see it ?
Beautiful Queen Anne’s Lace in the morn …
No it wasn’t a boring game WE WON but I couldn’t help but watch the ever changing sunset that evening…
About to become a plain ol’ thistle unless you open your eyes and see the BEAUTY …sigh
My mamma is too busy
watchin’ the cardinal and the robin
take a bath in the dew up on our hill
and the blackbird scooping up a cicada in his bill.
If tennis is not your game
i love walking just the same.
After mamma sips her tea
and eats her sourdough bread
maybe she will remember that i haven’t been fed.
Until then i will chew on this thing like gum
and wish my mamma wasn’t such a BUM!
One of my many favorite things to look forward to after winter are our city markets.
I am tryin’ a couple of new ones at the present. One is an all organic market and another has a few vendors with pesticide free produce and organic. Always lookin’ for the freshest quality ingredients I can find. My mission was to bring back some more Goliath tomatoes which have been the best I have had so far. Since it was snowing still in May here( which I never remember it doing) the tomatoes are a little late. I also scored with some delightful beets, corn, mint and pattypan squash. I am going to use some of the mint in ice cream after steeping it and the squash came home with more understanding on bees and their importance. Of course there was a lady selling some flowers that could be used to replace the pansies since they are getting to hot now. Twas’ a lovely day!
A begonia to replace the pansies
I asked the man why my squash had blooms but not fruit. He explained to me the bee has to travel from the female to male areas and in the case of the pattypan, I guess because of their location, sometimes one is missed.
One of the newest members to my garden
My other new member to the garden
A sneaky visitor while shooting
Dainty little things that have been hiding under the foliage
I love to watch these day by day unfold their beauty.
Quietly waiting for attention
An every changing greeting at the front entrance
Hidden in the woods
Out of the darkness into the light
Tractor tire swing
The lacy queen
Dusty road wind chime
Far from the city
Pretty in pink
Do you see the creature pointing to the entrance to the country shindig?
Another day sneaking away
I do believe I will stop at the drive up and get me some sweets on my way back home.
I don’t know ….should I go with the pink bottoms and orange top?
I think we are shopping at the same store….BRIGHT.
I could use a rub or even a touch…your time with me will linger on you.
Peekaboo…..I have a friend over for the afternoon.
Am I dressed too fancy for afternoon tea?
You mean because we are wearing a crown???
I’m new here in this garden…..do I fit in???
Bumblebees are my favorite customers.
If this lady would have planted me in more sunshine this outfit would have been a deeper purple.
I believe i am the fairest of them all.
There is only one of me in this garden so I have been moved to the shady spot by the front door.
Practicing for the fourth of July with an explosion of color.
When these firecrackers pop I will look like my relative above.
I have the best seat in the house. I also am a little flawed, but aren’t we all.
Home by Edgar Albert Guest : The Poetry Foundation.
One of my favorite poems about the home is by Edgar Guest. Take a moment to read it.
I ran across some pictures I took last fall of an old farm. I love taking pictures of these homes that have a story to tell. I wonder how many children were raised in this home? Were they well cared for; happy and healthy? What were some of their chores and where were their favorite hiding places? What were their happiest moments and their saddest? Just wondering…. what did they grow up to be? I’m hoping life went well for these folks.
My yard is filled with noise this week. The Carolina Wren in the Oak tree, the House Wren in the brush and checking out my house I have hung in the Birch tree, the Purple Finch in my Boston fern, the Robin’s nest in the neighbor’s gutter, the Catbirds with their meowing right before bedtime, the Mockingbirds, the Nuthatch with his “yank yank” sounds, the woodpeckers both Downey and Red-headed, and of course the Sparrows, Cardinals, and Bluejays. Throw in the bunny friend I’ve made in the last few days that is gorging himself on my lawn(which is filled with goodies of every kind because I do not spray), and it makes it hard for Puppy and me to peel ourselves away from the activity and blue skies with white fluffy clouds.
Greens for breakfast, lunch and dinner today for one of my sides as the doctor suggested and washing it down with a new kombucha flavor…Celestial Seasonings meyer lemon ginger YUM!!! Retiring with a new yoga dvd and waking up to a fresh page of life to color as I wish tomorrow.
More like photograph but you know what i mean 🙂
