I haven't been online enough lately. Like most people I seem to have plenty going on right now.
For instance we haven't had a working kitchen sink for a few days now and it's a surprising inconvenience. Kim decided to paint the kitchen, then that led to being unhappy with the counter top which led to replacing the counter top which led to not liking the old faucet, drawer pulls, back splash, etc. That's what happens when he's left alone with a week off to himself.
Oh well, it's going to look great eventually.
Now on to Things I am happy with;
1. The nasturtiums in the hanging baskets on the garage. They're actually blooming. I usually don't get many blooms from my nasturtiums. These are Empress of India.
2. My foxgloves. I just love them.
See that short wire fence? That's all it takes to keep the chickens from eating them into the ground. Yes, I know foxgloves are poisonous but the chickens LOVE eating their leaves.
(I told you I love foxgloves.)
3. Poppies and iris. Although they're both finished they were great when they were in bloom.
Two different poppies with Constance Spry rose in the background.
5. Watching the chickens.
6. First Strawberries of the season from our plants.
What are some of your favorite summer things?
