It's official...it's summer, and boy does it feel like it. Here in the piedmont, NC it's been H O T hot! It's keeping everyone busy watering gardens and flowers...and little kids!
With all that's going on here I'm forced to take a computer break for a few weeks at least, but I thought I'd give an explanation before my disappearance rather than come back with apologies.
I hope you all are enjoying your summer and I look forward to seeing what you are up to when I return. The shop will be open as usual by chance or appointment weekdays and Saturdays...if you are driving a distance it will be best if you do call first, as we are in and out a lot this time of year.
If you want to take a gander at my photos below, you will see where I'm spending a considerable amount of time....
|My first Black-eyed Susan of the season bloomed yesterday along with my first sunflower|
|I always have to have at least one pot of sea roses...sometimes I find them popping up in the oddest places,|
nowhere even near where they were the season before.
|Our first raised bed garden. I've loved it! No tractor or tiller needed.|
|... I could use a weed eater though.|
|Our first cukes showed up this week along with the zucchini. Yum.|
|The Chaste tree in front of the shop is in bloom loaded with bees. It was windy in this picture,|
but it's really pretty and round on top.
|Bees on the blooms.|
See you back here soon!
