Early rains and even earlier bouts of extreme heat has blessed local gardens with lush roses, and day lilies blooming several weeks early in NE Indiana.
We have eight long-stemmed roses blooming out our back door. "That's okay Jim, don't bring any home, just pick one as you walk in, the next time you're in the doghouse."
Jake is ten but still a pup in his mind....just throw him a ball and he'll fetch and retrieve, endlessly!
Carrots and yellow squash are planted in an old enamel pan. The green beans have done nothing in the old wash tub. I've done two plantings, and only one seed has sprouted! Can't imagine why!
An update on how the bale gardening is going...plants have tripled in size, and are fed with manure. The zukes are blooming, and so are the roma tomatoes.
Today, the orange corn lilies have opened for the first time.
The corgi kids and I saw a blue heron and a chubby groundhog sunning itself on our country road tour. None of the sheep were out, and ponies were all in the barn, staying in the shade. New batteries are in the camera so am hoping to catch the lamb twins soon to post a pic of them.
Summer and all its busyness is right around the corner. Time seems to go on fast forward. The summer reading program at the library opened this week, and folks flocked the desk to sign up for it. The birds seem to empty the feeders daily.
Roofers are next door, hammering away. Addie won't come outside with them near. Making it frustrating at potty time!
What do you like best of this season? I like having daylight until 9 p.m., and seeing things bloom. School's out for the summer, and it's totally a frame of mind for us all, not just something that happens for the kids.
