how I spend my evenings....

watering...

and taking photos...

the neighbors must think I am crazy...

walking around the yard with the hose in one hand...

and my camera in the other...

but the results are awesome...

not getting out much at all this week...

early in the morning and late in the evening...

I am not sure why I don't have more of these...

just 2 more days until the rain comes...

not one red one in sight...
yet...

the day lilies are about half way through now...

they seem to be doing ok in the heat...

the corn is really tasseled now...

and a bumble in the roses this evening...
he is so covered in yellow dust...

busy as a bee...

but he doesn't like his photo taken...
that's ok...
had to water this anyway and didn't want to get his wings wet...

and so it goes on the prairie...
went to bed too early and now I am up at midnight...
Craig's got 4 days in a row coming up at work...
they are all 4-10, so not out in the middle of the day...
DH is so tired when he gets home...
trying to keep them in power aid and bananas...
;)

Your neighbours will notice. My

daughter in-law when she was on

holidays with hubby and us

there to house sit. Her one

neighbour came to me

and told me all about the work

my daughter in-law does in her

garden to make it so pretty.

I was watering her pansies out front the one day and

picking off her finished pansies

and he called to me to tell me

that. Asking if we were the

Grandparents who was looking

after Teddy. I said. Yes

Sir we are.

Golly he even cut her lawn in

front for

her and hubby.

My daughter in-

law said. Grandpa dont you cut

the back lawn. Will do when I

get back. You and Mom just enjoy

doing what you want to do it is

your holiday away from home.

Now is that not a neighbourly

thing to do wow cut there lawn.

(Smile) I found when we

walked city neigbours can you

believe this waved at us or said

hi even teens. Boy times have

changed in the city when I lived

there. Maybe you think because it was summer. Hmmmmmmm

My other sons tomatoes are not

ripe neither or my best friends.

It will come. have patience my

dear.

All will come good soon and plenty.

Love your picture takes.

It is hot here. Not a day you can go out mid day to sit for hours or even out. You fry.

Tete, I feel like a snail...too hot to really even enjoy being out, unless it's morning or evening. Your flowers are looking pretty. Our tall lilies are about done now. I love having pretty flowers to look at each day. Good for you looking after your men. Take care of your self too. xoxox, Susie

I love your scarecrow in the background of the garden, Tete! He looks so cute standing behind the Rose of Sharon.
Your pictures are AWESOME!!
You do such a nice job setting up garden rooms at your place.
Summer is always fun at your house.
