Keeping Busy Life Stuff

The week has been very busy, sometimes too much work to finish, appointments, regular home jobs to keep up.

It has rained nicely, mostly at night and early mornings. Weeding goes faster when the ground has had a soaking.

The first tomatoes have appeared and the blueberries are ripening - I picked a vegetable bowl full to bring in earlier this week.

Pulled a brown gardening bag of vine weeds after supper last night and moved it to join the other bags waiting for the next trip to the plant recycling dump. Covered all the bags with a big plastic sheet - the bags are 'bottom wet' from last night's rain and I think they will dry out before they need to be moved.

The sweet peas showed their first bloom yesterday. The 30 year old original rose bush is blooming but the younger rose bushes have slowed down.

The breezes have been lovely after the rain.

Thank you for dropping by for a quick visit today.

  1. Life is like that so often, isn't it? Just the normal day-to-day keeps us hopping, forget about doing projects! Nice to know you're in the same boat with me :)

  2. Lovely, lovely!
    I hope things slow down for you. :)

  3. Everything in your garden looks lovely. Our veggie garden was a major fail. We got a couple of bitter cucumbers and one that was all white. No zuchs, no tomatoes and no peppers. I think it's just too hot and humid, even at night.

  4. I love the idea of plant recycling, that is great. I wish we had that here, I always feel guilty throwing plant materiel in the garbage. Beautiful flowers my friend.

  5. Mmmm...your veggies look great. I'm just getting the hang of growing flowers. I'm not sure I'm ready for veggies yet!

  6. I hear you! I thought summer would give me more time to craft & blog...but not so much. Not that I can complain, we're still having fun! Hope your days are full of things that make you smile!

  7. Your Garden looks lovely Joy! The size of your blueberries had me astounded the variety I grow are quite small.
    You're most welcome to join me in a cuppa,
    Bless you,

  8. Hello, beautiful flowers. The blueberries look yummy. Lovely gardens and photos. Enjoy your day, wishing you a great new week!

  9. Lovely blooms are in your garden... happy MosaicMonday

  10. Lovely you reaped such a harvest. Have a good week. Happy mosaic Monday

    much love...

  11. The blueberries sure look good! I would probably pick them and eat them when off the plant! And wonder why I don't have any to harvest! heehee! Hope you have a good week!

  12. Joy - I have such wonderful childhood memories of tomato plants - nothing smells better than the aroma of a tomato leaf that has been rubbed between your fingers! I'll bet you enjoyed those fresh blueberries. Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday!

  13. Beautiful garden flowers, especially I am fond of Japanese anemones.

  14. You're the third, maybe fourth, blogger who mentioned the rain. I am envious about that. I'm happy though that we aren't experiencing drought nor feeling extreme heat. Still, I'd love to experience a summer rain in my part of California more than once or twice. :-)


Thanks for visiting. I read and appreciate all your comments. Joy
