After last summer’s damn-near backbreaking heat, I am so glad to see us usher this one in with rain, wind, and lightning. It does my heart good to walk out into my backyard and see my flowers prospering,
my herbs having a ball,
my lettuce lettucing,
and my tomatoes being all green and lush with little baby flowers waiting to be delicious.
You know, as opposed to last year when everything was dead for miles around.
I know my gardens aren’t perfectly manicured, weeded, or prize-winning. But, they’re mine. And they give me a happy.

Looking great! The rains this year really have been good for making things green again, and I’m looking forward to a pretty summer instead of one that is just hot hot hot.
Oh, I know. Even though it is supposed to get up to 100F today, I am so grateful for the cloud cover and wind that is keeping things cooler. Maybe we’ll even get the lake levels close to normal! 😀
Your garden looks gorgeous. Maybe I will catch up with you this weekend??
I will be in town all weekend – I have an out of town guest coming on Saturday. If you are available, you are most welcome to come out for greets.
Otherwise, I will hopefully catch up next week.
Love the sunflower. Hate the sun. But that’s how I roll. 😛
Now, can we have the summer off like our children do so that we can enjoy it? You put in the memo, and I’ll try to expedite it.
Except that we are talking about a year-round school for kids now. 🙂
Trying to get S to do your homework this summer?
That globe basil is beautiful. Never seen the like. Is it culinary?
It is culinary. Its full name is Spicy Globe Basil. He will get to be quite the big boy once I move him into a larger pot.

I’m crying with envy, but it’s a beautiful garden, yes indeedy! 😀
That it is. 🙂 It gives me a calm to sit out there and chill in the evening.
I heart the monster sunflowers from SPACE! I just know they have a brain almost as big as ours. They are aliens in disguise.
