Hello my friends!
The sunniest days of the year are upon us.
The taste of warm breeze and petal air swirls madly.
The first round of roses has gone as a second starts to turn up.
Hollyhocks and cosmos jump in just in time.
We've had the most scrumptious evenings.
It's been downright chilly at night in the desert and very warm in the day.
Perfect chaise lounge weather for tanning legs and reading novels at sunset.
The rabbits tried to obliterate the hollyhocks so I made open top cages and voila.
The hollyhocks are saved.
Precious paper ruffled heirlooms.
Love them so.
Tea party season is on my mind.
I'm coming up with dates and ideas.
The veggie garden was gobbled again this year.
However, the tomatoes are okay so far.
There must be about a hundred out there, yippeeee!
And up go the fairytale pumpkin vines.
I lost them last year to javelinas breaking in.
These are the last of my own seeds from my 6 or 7 times pumpkin grandbabies.
Fingers crossed that they don't get munched!
We watch and wait and let cherry tomatoes burst in our mouths.
There is nothing like the flavor of a fresh organic tomato right out of the garden.
Flavor like no other.
And so, now we enjoy the garden shift from spring to summer.
So much to do, so much to do.
I've been major spring cleaning.
Shipping out the creatures from the last post with lots of love.
Painting, spending a couple days a week in the city.
Just changing my scenery up, antiquing, going to cafes.
It's great, I love it.
I love the reboot by escaping the country here and there.
It's sooooo important to do things you love from time to time.
I love the country solitude, I need that too.
So, I'm feeling lucky I've been doing both, finding that balance.
I need my antiquing & junking, and most shops are dog friendly.
The one thing is though, I have so much stuff, that now I just enjoy looking and only buy something that I might find utterly spectacular.
Miley (golden) comes with me.
Matty (brown dog) is too mean and doesn't like people so I can't take him.
But Miley is a joy to all and loves on every single person he can.
I adore Matty soooo much, I wish that he was easier for his own good.
Breaks my heart really.
But he is who he is, and we let him be his weird little self.
He's happiest in his little world, guarding his kingdom.
The hatter and him go out for burgers, wrestle, play wild dog games a lot, and bonus, have the same personality so all is well with the world, hahaha!
I'm glad they hold down the fort so Miley and I can go play.
Miley had a bath today, what a job!
But he looks crazy handsome, just in time for a nice outing.
Now I'm just babbling nonsense.
So, I'll say, have a fabulous weekend!!
3 days of fun, wooo hoooo!
See you soon.
