Late spring is my favorite, I’m just trying to keep up!
This week we had some rich compost delivered. Shoveling that sh*t was hard work but a dunk in Goose Pond made it all worth it. I reclaimed some lawn outside the garden borders to allow for some rambling squash plants too, hopefully we have a chaotic patch of pumpkins and hubbard squash and zucchini soon.
The perennial gardens are blooming and filling in as well. The early morning dew, fog and light made for some beautiful photos, many of these were taken by Opal.
Morning fog, Hunky toads, dewdrops and campfires….life is good.
Opal found a buddy!

The strawberries took over this bed. I don’t mind!
This week it seems that Spring has officially sprung. The trees have leaves overnight and the world is greening-up and growing.
Who am I to get in it’s way?
This week was full of back-to-school excitement and the slanting light of late summer. Soon there will be a chill in the air and I’ll be able to wear a sweater and socks. My favorite time of year.
An all local dinner (veggies from our garden), beef from up the hill. Yum!
Baby new potatoes with lots of butter, herbs and parmesan cheese. Also yum!
The smallest frog, an expert at camouflage.
Keeping cool in the summer heat. Maybe sometime I’ll try resting my belly on the cool tiles.
I couldn’t help myself, I dyed some scarves.
Mysterious pancakes emblazoned with Oak Trees.
Ended the week with a visit from a dear friend and a sun ray.
Summer bliss, a darn good week all in all.
My cast comes off tomorrow, so next week is looking up too!
I love my peg leg but not as much as my actual foot. Goodbye cast, you’ve been swell!
The lace of Queen Anne and Susan’s brown eyes.
Fresh picked blueberries and vanilla ice cream for breakfast. Don’t mind if I do.
Twilight Gin and Tonic. Is there anything better in the summer? The blueberry addition was relish, next time I’ll muddle them a bit.
Birthday kebobs at the fire pit. Made with local beef, zucchini and tomatoes from the garden. Maybe next year I’ll grow the mushrooms and peppers too.
Peas bursting from their pods. So juicy and sweet.
Happy Birthday! Homemade chocolate raspberry cake with raspberries from Darling’s farm. Next time I’ll eat two pieces. 🙂
Friends and family enjoying the evening twilight. Bliss.
I got a new lens for my camera just in time to capture the beautiful Full Blue Moon.
The hummers go through about 6 cups of nectar every 4 days. The air is literally a-buzz.
Baby bunnies, it doesn’t get much cuter!
