Garden Thoughts for Today
This morning I got up like any other and did the normal routine things like going out with the dogs, oops coffee first and taking a leisurely stroll around the garden areas to see what I need to do to keep everybody alive here in the heat. Yes, I know Water, but you have to be careful living with a Well... The above picture is of my beautiful Lemon Yellow Daylily. This photo doesn't capture it's true beauty. It's super bright and she is one of the first daylilies you'll see by the driveway and porch when you visit.
So I put the dogs back inside out of the heat and dragged out the hose to water yet again at O-Clock Thirty because it's just hot and I swear I'm drenched when I come in from watering. No, I didn't squirt myself, but I should have, maybe next time.
Anyway I'm back inside and I think that's where I'm staying!!! I hate being in the house, because I see things I should be doing and I don't even what to do those things either..
So instead I'm picking up a garden book. Not a how-to garden book ,or a design your yard one, NO this time I need a little humor and historical facts and just a great all around read. The book I'm reading is : GREEN THOUGHTS: A writer in the Garden-by Eleanor Pere'nyi...
While I was doing a amazon search in the garden area I found this and ordered it along with a few others to read. Now they have come and I'm grabbing some tea and putting my feet up and hibernate for a few hours.Just me and the dogs and a comfy spot. So don't call I won't answer the phone.
I hope you all are enjoying your gardens and I hope your temps are better then mine for gardening.. So Peace Out and Enjoy the day.
