We woke before dawn.
We went out to the deck to see
Venus and Jupiter with the
waning crescent moon.
I watered the seedlings
I removed the tall toms I had soaking overnight.
I will fill the pots with soil and more zinnia seeds.
Zinnias will be wonderful butterfly food come August.
We have two 20 gallon tubs filled with water
on the deck.
We are dechlorinating the water
for our hand watering.
The butterflies are out early
in the day.
Our lows are in the 70's.
Highs are once again in the upper 90's
and into the 100's.
I checked the Fig garden.
The Figs are doing just fine in the heat.
I think we will have a nice crop come September.
The gourds are beginning to form.
I am very excited.
They will stay on the trellis until
After watering the plants and refilling the bird and bug's
water dishes I sat with the birds.
By 9am I was inside.
I am adjusting to the heat and dryness.
I made garden potato salad and lemon sorbet.
I am falling in love with my handmade life.
It is a simple life. It is the life of a gardener.
Happy Sunday Safari.
