We have had another great week of weather, even reaching 80 on Wednesday. Our roses are starting to bloom.
So are the fox gloves.
We have gone for our exercise walk, 3.25 miles, almost every day.
By Monday I was ready to go back the the site of the wasp sting, bee activity seeming squelched by spray in that bird house nest. As of today, my face is pretty much back to normal, the last of the swelling and itching gone. So Monday and Tuesday I finished the clean up of the scilla foliage, cleaning out the rose bed and the bank above it. That was hard work, and hard on the back.
Tuesday I had time out to go get a haircut before going back to work in the garden. By Wednesday the garden jobs were getting crossed off the list. It was warm and I actually sat on the patio and read all afternoon, or at least until it was time to go to Irene's cross country meet. She suffered in the heat and from a cough from a cold or something the Friday before, twisted her ankle and walked part of the two miles, but still came in in the top six.
Thursday all I did was go for our walk and go out to lunch with retired teacher friends from my old school staff. The rest of the day I sat on the patio and read. Yay me!
Now it's Friday. We have gone to our usual Friday morning breakfast with Tom's former staff members, and finished our exercise walk. Then I grabbed my camera for a few garden photos so I had something to pretty up my post.
The Korean dogwoods are in full bloom now, the native dogwoods being long past bloom time.
We have two trees, one in the back yard and one in the front.
This one in front is what I can look down on from our home office window as I sit here at the desk top computer.
Slowing down these last few days has been great. We'll be doing more of it!
