What a Difference a Day Makes!


I should have been sewing but this is all I accomplished! I kept flitting in and out of the house all day checking on things in the garden. After yesterday's overcast rainy day it was good to be outside. First I checked on my grapes.......getting bigger but still as hard as little stones. I then did some pruning on my roses, this year we have been lucky, they have been relatively pest free.
Found lots of little bees buzzing around my daisy all covered in pollen.I watered my window boxes, they quite often need watering twice a day now if it is very sunny.I did some deadheading on my hanging basket, it is in full bloom right now and extremely heavy, I always wonder every year if the hook will hold, and it always does.Then I sat out back for a while and had some tea and read my book, before I knew it dinner was needing to be fixed.Maybe tomorrow the little mice will have their bodies, and the little piggy will have some new clothes....then again maybe not, it all depends on the weather!

You are an expert gardener!!! I love all the red geraniums! It reminds me of Carl Larsson's paintings because his house always had pots of red geraniums in it!! I SO wish you lived close to me!!! I would share all my baking with you and you could teach me to garden!!!

Your yard and flowers are like out of a magazine - so picture perfect. I enjoy each and every picture you post - they make me feel like I am right there in your back yard!! Oh that would be so much fun.

There is so much beauty in your garden, I can see why you'd wander outside over and over again especially after a day of rain. It's raining here today actually and more than anything I wish I could outside and have a cup of tea with a good book. Thanks for the inspiration.
Hugs,
Dy
