Garden Tour


My garden doesn't really look like this but my thumb is thankfully greening!  That's the fun thing about painting- you can be aspirational & imagine just how you'd like things to look.  Next year I would like to quadrant out areas one for only herbs, one for plants that bring pollinators, one full of veggies and next to that, a plot of plants that keep bugs away. (One with natural bug repellents, I'm curious how effective they are?)

Garden tip- if there are roses around never miss I chance to stop & give them a good sniff.  I also like to rub my hands across lavender or rosemary for a quick fragrant pick me up.

Let the good times roll!  I've said it before & I'll say it again summer is my favorite season.

The sun, the warm air, the colors in the nature around me all adds to a happy, free feeling I carry in my mind through the summer months.  I've never lived in a place that is warm year round I wonder would this feeling carry over?  Or perhaps I find such enjoyment in the warm months because I know it's fleeting.?.

Independence Day

"Every heart beats true
'neath the Red, White, and Blue,"
verse from You're a Grand Old Flag
by George M. Cohan (1906)
One of my childhood favorites to belt out!🎶
Happy 4th of July
 We started the day off with an early morning 5K.
