I think we can safely say that Summer has gotten well underway. While all my favorite Bloggers in England are wondering when the rain will stop ~ we are starting to wonder when it may fall again? We live on a dirt road and when the neighbors drive by it sends up quite a cloud , and looks like "The Great Dust Bowl" out there! *cough* gag* I've got fingers crossed we get a few drops soon!!
In other news~
My Holly Hock really did bloom ~ so that's pretty exciting!
We harvested enough peas to have with dinner a couple times!
We've had bunches of raspberries, and lots of strawberries this year; more than we've ever had out there!
And, we just sampled our first fresh broccoli, I've never grown it before ~ it was down right tastey.
Sorry, no picture... we ate the evidence.
There's been an unfortunate incident in the Shasta Daisy patch. It seems a certain little horse has discovered that if he hooks his elbows over the top rail of the fence, and then leans way over sideways ~ he can eat the daisies down to little green nubs....
|This technique only nips the top off.... got to get your knees up and over to get the succulent bits...|

How about a chipmunk? I didn't make him.... but he's awfully cute.
But alas, I am without any art or craft to bestow upon your eyeballs. :(((
I'll have to find something in my stash of 'projects in progress' (try saying that 5 times fast) and finish it!
I just need to put in some ear plugs so I can't hear the garden calling to me... it's like the Siren's Song; if I'm not careful I'll be shipwrecked in the begonias and talking to the plastic garden gnome.
