The daylilies are blooming, and I always enjoy them. The blooms last for one day, which in this hectic world we live in, reminds me to stop and enjoy them because their beauty is fleeting. These are the ones blooming right now. Others have gone by and some are yet to come.
We are in a drought, and that definitely impacts everything in the landscape. Our blueberries are not ripening and the tomato plants are not doing well at all. I may have to buy tomatoes this year. Now, that’s a gardening travesty. 🙂
Look what I saw when I looked up from pruning a tree last week. The paper wasps are back. These guys sting.
I’ve ordered an extension battery chain saw. It should arrive this week, and I’ll cut the branch off back at the base and hope to relocate it off to the edges of the property.
Why even try to move it? I don’t want to get stung while working out there, and I’m seeing very few pollinators so I don’t want to unnecessarily kill those that are around.
On Friday, we closed out the week with a lovely picnic and afternoon sitting by the water with a friend. We talked and laughed for a couple of hours. It is always good for the soul to just have an old-fashioned conversation without a phone involved.
Gardening, reading, sewing, and a little DIY are on my agenda this week. I’m moving a little slower right now because yesterday I dropped an iron cultivator wheel on my foot. Based upon my experience, if at all possible, avoid doing that. 🙂
Hope you have a wonderful week!
