I know other bloggers deal with similar conditions. Perhaps it is the summer heat and that passion to be in the garden that can bring us down so badly physically ..
How ironic is that ? .. I find such peace and satisfaction from my garden yet the physical work can torture my body .. yet I still drive it into the ground trying to do the work I see that needs doing .. yes, husband is wonderful for help .. but we all know "we" need to settle our garden issues ourselves ? ;-) .. it is rather funny in a way .. you have to see the humour, don't you ?
Again .. the variety of sweet potato vines and Diamond Frost Euphorbia are stoic in the state of neglect it falls into with me .. guilt pangs abound naturally, but I am so grateful they can come back from the brink of "Oh S*** !!!" I forgot to water you guys again ???? LOL
I find this bottom picture peaceful .. I'm not sure what it is that makes it so .. but it is : )
The Stag Horn Sumac, aka "pampered sumac" love of my life .. his horns are getting more beautiful each day. Soon the leaves will begin that fantastic colour transition which still amazes me every year, just like the first time I had ever seen them : )
The moon in the morning .... these two pictures are a few days apart .. can you see the difference ?
Maybe it is me with the camera ? GOOD GRIEF !!
Just that red glow morning ... I am grateful for a reasonable horizon.
BUT ... I am waiting for those fantastic red sky mornings of Autumn and winter .. there .. I have said it out loud ... AUTUMN and WINTER .. I can hear hissing and spitting over the winter part?
Progress on the shared space ... Sweet Autumn clematis is trying her best, along with Henrii , Niobe and ornamental kiwi vine .. to green up the arbor gate .. the experimental plantings of Halcyon hosta roots from Costco .. the ostrich fern .. and a few odds and ends ... seem to be holding their own.
I still owe Martha from "Water Roots" a load of day lilies .. Martha, I swear they are yours .. I just need a little more time to recuperate .. guilt guilt ..LOL !!
I have to check Home Sense for Halloween things that might have come in .. we ( Martha, and Linda "Crafty Gardener") should really do that, and lunch, and gab away about our gardens !: )
