The last few days have been wonderful with less heat and humidity. Alas we are headed for that again with some rain tonight. I found some perfect moments, you know the kind .. the plants are looking great .. watered just enough .. no insect or slug problem YET .. everybody looking happy ? ... so they smiled for the camera. The pictures are a bit dark because this is under the shade of our big Crimson King Maple tree .. the front garden protector ? The only problem with this wonderful guardian, is that he traps the rain from falling on the plants here .. so we have asked for the expertise of a gentleman who has his own little company "Creative Pruning" .. so perhaps we can open up and air out our gorgeous protector ?
