Slipping Softly into July

Suddenly, it’s July . . . And the days are long, hot, hazy and languid. The pace of a gardener’s life shifts. Days of dividing, planting and pruning have passed by for now. Mowing, weeding and deadheading are chores reserved for the early morning hours. Late afternoons are reserved for swings in the hammock, ice-cold lemonade and good books. Sultry evenings invite sangria on the terrace and firefly spotting beneath the stars . Hello, summer.

    Summer truly IS here; fully, completely and we’re “making hay while the sun shines”, lol! Thank you for sharing such a lovely, misty morning (and comes with Smell-o-Vision too; )
