I did not leave the house. It was a productive day and I even got a nap. I went outside early and moved some plants to soften the edges of the new path. About 10:30 a.m. I layed on the sofa to watch a little FoodTV. While Paula Dean was exaggerating her southern drawl, I feel asleep. That's OK. I needed a little nap.
Shortly after noon, I went back outside and worked a bit more. I think I need another 12 pavers to extend my path across the back section. I was mentally planning where it would go. I think I have it all figured out. I just need to convince DH. So far he's not too enthused about making another one.
Look at this yellow spider with the brown stripe. It matched the flower it was on.
Does anyone know the name of this one? I don't think I 've ever seen a yellow one like this.
Yesterday we stopped at the Farmer's Market in town and bought these fingerling potatoes and green beans. DH bought the sweet cherries at the grocery store today.
The summer squash and zucchini came from my Dad's garden. I must have inherited my love of gardening from Dad. He plants a large veggie garden every year. He only lives a mile away so I get a lot of the goodies.
Ah, the foods of summer. Fresh, delicious and even healthy.
Remember the dahlia bud below that looked purple?
Well, it opened today. It's called 'Mignon Sunshine'
It's not purple, but it's not quite like the picture on the package. (You will have to scroll down a bit to see the picture. I'm too lazy to make a hyperlink right now).
I find it rather muddy and where's the red? Maybe it gets more red in the center as it ages.
Let the Basting Begin! - I am using my dining room table to baste this big one -- it's about 105 x 105 inches (king size). It's been a while since I've finished one this big.
