This morning overcast skies and cooler weather greeted us--
and it felt SO good after all the hot weather we've had!
I am sure our plants were thankful too for the brief respite-
the roses and some other plants look pretty stressed right now...
of course that might have more to do with me not watering them
as much since my last BIG snake sighting:)
Aimee and snakes DO NOT get along.
My most recent plant purchase---
not a very good photo I am afraid
but this is one GORGEOUS plant--
the pretty flowers look just like velvet--
I kid you not!
Found the formerly 'missing' kiwi--
this year's crop will be smaller but we'll still have more than enough:)
One thing that is doing fabulous this year is our hydrangea--
it loves the extra light it is getting this year since a nearby willow was cut down.
Sadly, our lavender should have been harvested before this...
but wasn't because of the heat.
Aimee and heat don't get along either:(
Oh well...the bees are loving it...
and I even found two dragonflies on it this morn.
Aimee and bees
Aimee and dragonflies get along quite well:)
We grow mostly culinary lavender
(about 10 or so plants).
Last year I dried it by hanging small bunches of it under our kiwi arbor.
It dried perfectly and smells heavenly!
Hum--I wonder if heaven smells like lavender.
Roses...love, love roses!
this morning I caught a two-legged creature happily munching away on them;
I joined him :)
And with that I wish you adieu.
Hope you have a day filled with peace and joy!
