This is the time of year when the garden tangles itself. Morning glories can put a choke hold on other plants, can't they? I may have to wrestle with the winding vines to save a rose or two. Yikes!
Look what I found at the grocery store! The books are ten dollars each so I didn't buy one, but I was certainly tempted. Adult coloring books are kind of a big deal right now as I'm sure you've seen.
Summer is so green here.
I had a whole pot of tea with dressed up Betty.
Our garden isn't vast, doesn't have interesting water features, and it is MOSTLY grass, but I still like this tin sign.
Christie made bread. Yum. The butter is soft. I'm having THIS for breakfast.
Cabbage. I'm crazy for it. Are you?
I think I like little red potatoes more than "chips". The little green specks are onions that grew in the side garden. Yay!
Here's James and Christie saying hello to my neighbor's grand pups.
Do you place summer leaves in books? Aren't sunflower leaves impressive? I must think of which big book can house a sunflower leaf.
I still haven't cleaned up after the weekend grand fest.
Have you read Susan Southam's books? The Cottage Under the Big Pines is scrumptious and THIS (I think it was her first) is gorgeous, too.
I really love setting eyes on the colors below. I've been working with them for quite some time. The striped sweater is on hold, I guess.
The bandana cowl is fun. I have a ways to go.
Oooops. I haven't made the bed the girls slept in. Maybe today. It's a lot of work to undo a bed, wash the sheets, and then put it all back together. Lazy Pom Pom.
I think one of my winter projects will be to paint all the shelves in the family room.
Here's teapot alley
I sorted (sort of) the tea. What kind would you like? Beware of the Yogi Get Regular tea. It works fast.
I have a sweet friend visiting this morning. I shall try to go to Jenny's to visit the chickens after that. I have another book that is extremely tempting. It's called The Private Diaries of Alison Uttley. I LOVE reading diaries. Do you? You must because you read blogs.
Time to dry my hair and eat more bread.
I hope your day holds precious and treasured ORDINARY joys. (BIG HUG!)
