|a garden is of course a delight to the mind and a joy for the senses, but at the same time jolly hard work, especially in the growing season and one has been away for a week; luckily yesterday the weather was just perfect for odd jobs in the garden and I had the time to do it:|
I planted three sage, three chive and three peppermint plants in the raised beds in our front yard, sowed a mixture of flower seeds in bed at the back (near North facing kitchen window) and American poppies under sweet chestnut, assuming they can handle shade, in the patch Django dug up and which looks pretty bare at the moment; pulled up dyeing plants for the first-dye-batch-with-seasonal-plants in casu dandelions and sorrel, weeded*, raked, spent what seemed like hours scraping between tiles on knees, or else stood in squat position for minutes-on-end and realised it all felt a bit familiar as it resembled the hours of exercise we enjoyed on our Grecian holiday .....I ended up by zealously starting to mow the ankle high grass, but all of a sudden felt completely fed up & knackered and midway through it all decided to call it a day while there was still daylight to be had.....who knows, maybe I should have started with the mowing - I am now hoping one of the guys will finish the job!
Michelle, the greens are so intense this time of year, I could almost eat the grasses.....Time slipping through, well that explains how wrinkles materialize, ha; it sure is a nice day for a mother
I especially like your wild hare, which calls to mind the whimsical rabbit in the children's book entitled Knuffle Bunny.
And all that luscious cloth(ing?) ... what's next, I wonder?
Gardening. All Kinds.
