Welcome Summer!


It feels and looks like summer today.  The sun is so bright and the sky is so blue, not a cloud in sight.  I spent some time in the garden.

There is only a little bit of shade in our yard.

This is the shadiest area and you can see that it is not too extensive.

The clematis is reaching through the fence.  The peonies are pretty much over.

It is so sunny here that the pink of these—4 hypoestes and a ptilotus, which I planed over the dried up daffodils today—are completely bleached out.


  1. I'm glad you are getting some sunshine. I guess you are about three weeks to four weeks behind us.

  2. Nice summer day here too. Not to hot, which we appreciate because when the heat sets in it really sets in.

  3. Looks pretty and green there, Olga. I'm the opposite - I live in the forest shade. That has it's own gardening challenges.

  4. Sunshine is wonderful. Enjoy your beautiful yard. We have some sun filtering through the trees, but its hard to get anything to grow!!

  5. I love the clematis- what a pretty flower - do they come in several colors?


I appreciate readers' comments so much. You don't even always have to agree with me.
