I like to walk around the yard and find flowers for cutting. My wee bouquets never quite look like lush florist jobs, but I think they have a different charm - because I grew them and they are from our place. This posy is Mexican Apple Blossom (smells really good!) and white Granny Bonnets (Columbine).
My garden is a mass of weeds at the moment - I’m feeling a bit behind and a tad overwhelmed - so I have decided I will get into the habit of doing an hour or so after dinner each night. With the longer evenings now I figure it is the perfect time - household duties are over for the day, no danger of getting sunburned, it’s cool, and it is a good time to fiddle with plants - watering, transplanting, planting out etc.
Sort of like the advantages of night-swimming...I wonder if there is an REM song about pulling weeds in the twilight?
