Walk with Me
I am lucky to to be surrounded by trees and woods. I have wild roses blooming and they're beautiful. The fragrance is mild and sometimes I catch a whiff of loveliness. The wild blackberries are nearly finished blooming and in a month it will be picking time. Unfortunately the berries are quite bitter and need lots of sugar, well maybe that isn't so bad. A couple years ago my son and husband made ink out of them. It worked but it was a faded ink. I think the fun was all about the gathering.
Yesterday the rain arrived and it was a drippy drizzly day. The plants and flowers needed the moisture so I enjoyed the change of weather. This spring for me has been a cool low humidity one-my hair loves it! Unfortunately my husband has not been in the pool yet because it has been too cold. I am sure the hot weather will be here in no time at all. I'll wilt and he will bask.
Our vegetable garden is in. We scaled back on the tomato and pepper plants this year. We added spinach and lettuce and a nifty fence to keep the rabbits out. Maybe later we'll add some kind of cabbage family plant. Kale?? I love thwarting the pests with the fence. I feel like a sinner with those vindictive thoughts.
See that fence?? So far so good. No one has climbed under or scaled over.
Have a lovely weekend!
