Knitting, spinning, pets, food and other thoughts



Lots of things have been growing here, in spite of a serious lack of rain. This little guy is on the porch, and I love the bright geranium!

The Harison’s Yellow rose has put on quite a burst since we put in the trellis, while the Prairie Sunrise is growing, but much more slowly.

This corner of the deck is one of Toby’s favorite spots – from there, he can supervise what I’m doing in the garden, or he can go down into the yard from the other side of the deck.

  1. I’m nursing my new knock-out rose. It’s having such a tough go with this drought. Watering it everyday. There is a perk, though. The Epimedium is getting run off and flourishing. Hugs, Girl!!!!

  2. Toby looks so comfortable! Your planter looks so cute and I can’t wait to see your roses blooming.

  3. Are you getting some rain? We finally had a good thunderstorm with some rain last night… and it’s starting again. We were incredibly parched here!
