Summing it Up...

Now, that I'm way on the wrong side of sixty, I feel that being true to self is important. "I yam, what I yam." Kindness and smiles are to be given away. Women are strong. Men are more vulnerable than we believe. Husbands may come and go...but one thing I know for sure is that I will NEVAH live without a corgi or coffee in my life if I can prevent it. Come piles of dog fur or hot water!

Garden Colors....

This time of year, the blooms are showy, and full.

For a brief, shining moment, the peak color enhances everything, and we're lovely.


Like Queen Anne's lace? It's a weed, and was dug up along a roadside.




The butterfly weed came home with us from a trip to Williamsburg.


Jim wants to get out the machete to hack a path for the corgis, through the jungle. I'm thinkin'....what jungle?


The hollyhocks are seven foot tall!



These bushy sunflowers, bloom all summer long, and thicken up, making a hedge.

Lots of color, lots of birds, lots of work...but man, I love the colors!

I remember some photos you showed of yr little cottage in the snow and the cold...I remember thinking how cozy it looked, but how desolate outside...I can't believe the difference. It's like a fairyland now. You could make a beautiful calendar of all the plants and blooms and just the gorgeous cheeriness of it all!!! The corgis by the gate are so adorable...

Am I crazy or did you do a major overhaul on your blog? It looks totally different to me - am I seeing things?

Looks great.

Love those beautiful flowers - you're a master gardener which I am not (LOL).
