This Week in Pictures (June 1, 2016)

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.

Yours,

Deb

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?

Yours,

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.

Yours,

Deb

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.

The hummers go through about 6 cups of nectar every 4 days. The air is literally a-buzz.
