It's raining and the sun is shining.
That says it for me too.
The garden is loving it! and everything is coming along as expected :)
I am not loving it, today i did cry. If anything i have now a very deep respect for people who quit anything they hang on to. Just a few days ago the gophers returned to my garden. I am not asking them to leave yet. Now why should i ask anybody to give up anything they love.
But seriously, if you know me longer, i will talk to the critters of the woods, and they do listen. As for gophers i will ask them not to move in under my house.
If you have any trouble with critters, i urge you to try this method first, it is most gentle and very respectful and VERY EFFECTIVE.
When crying, because this is just too hard for me, i saunter in my garden and truly there is always something that lifts the spirit.
and my sorrows forgotten. Close to the rain barrel, there are at least 6 young Juncos, a Junco is not a shy bird as it is, but these little ones have less fear for me as their smaller looking, more streamlined parents.
In the thick foliage of my wild garden, the wild strawberries are now ripe
My picture maybe didn't work out for the tiny juicy shining strawberries.
I kind of liked it how it did turn out.
what a life
