Let's raise a glass of ice cold lemonade to the fan that's fanning over my left shoulder and the airconditioners GG carried down our rickety attic stairs last night.
It's come in like a lion, summer that is, and we're waiting for the sun to drop below the leylands before we water. We just checked the temperature, it's 95 at 7:30 PM. Ahhhh, summer.
This morning I was up with the birds and out with the mosquitoes ( the biggest bites are just before dawn) and took a few pictures of the New Bed ( remember?) that is filling in nicely with a variety of crops from our compost.
There are 3 tomatoes and a few vines, what do you think, squash, cucumber? There's also a volunteer euphorbia, martini we believe and a couple of sage plants.
The beds may run rampant with a variety of who knows what but that GG runs a tight border patrol.:)
We're replanting the bed under the back stairs former home of the giant pussy willow.
With every fern we move along comes a lily of the valley here and a piece of sweet woodruff there.
Well done on the self planting. Now this garden just needs to learn how to weed itself and we'll have it all going on. Inside.
Sun's down, I'm off.
How's your summer growing?
