A Bright New Day!
You guys are still here? I didn't scare you off with my rant? Well, thank you! My husband got a kick out of that post but wasn't able to see the comments from the ship so he requested I copy & send them - see, it's not only me that loves hearing your take on matters at home. Seriously, you guys are a great sounding board, and I woke up to a shiny new day ready to take on the world, or at least my garden. Slightly less humidity for today only, the weatherman says, so I took the opportunity to dig some of my container tomatoes into the bare ground, trying to save them. Only time will tell if they live through my mistreatment, but now I know it is just too hot and humid to container-grow tomatoes here. Live and learn. I got to walk around the garden a bit today with my camera, here are some of the things brightening my day today:
Kenneth the Guerrilla Gardener must have visited me because I sure don't remember planting any lilies!
Lots of dragonflies this week
Remember my baby dove? Here she is venturing out of her basket, perched on a bamboo fence
She is growing fast, soon to be foraging around the garden with me while I do my chores. Unfortunately, one day when the mama flew out of the nest, I saw one of the 2 babies was dead, so mama watched me as I removed it, but she came right back to parent the other.
Time for me to go, Finn's preschool "graduation" is in an hour, and I figure I might want to get presentable, i.e. maybe no bugs in my hair and tomato leaf stains all over my hands, LOL!
Pictures of that to follow soon...
