Watered the perennials.
Relocated small rocks.
Filled the bird bath.
Weeded out the garden.
Smelled some flowers. :)
And last but not least...
Fed the chippies.
Now it's lunch-time and I'm ready for a cup of tea.
What goes great with tea? A muffin, of course. So...I'll have one. :)
The Tiger Lilies have bloomed. =^..^=
They are located right at the front of the property and in the ditch over the fence. If they are in the ditch in front of my gate that makes them mine, right? :-)
Could they possibly be the same Lilies that grew there when my grandmother lived on this land? I remember picking them as a child and bringing them into her summer kitchen to place on the old kitchen table.I suppose they are the same plants and I love them more because of it.
I am forced to wear a hat with the heat of the sun. You could very quickly get heat-stroke just cutting your lawn these days. Although I hate wearing one I hate heat-stroke even more. The part of the property that will not be affected by the next building phase is quite big so it takes awhile to cut it with a regular mower which I like to use.
The really long grass in the photos will have to be cut with a bush-hog as my mower just won't cut it. Then I'll start keeping it cut short from then on.
The retired-guy always cuts this grass with the tractor but he's too busy prettying-up the outside of the mouse-house so I volunteered.
I help where I can.
We are almost done and no one has died. :)))
Back to the mowing...There are a few bunches of daisies along the side of the grass but I just go around them.
Who could mow down a daisy?
My Morning Glories, Daffodils, Basil, Yellow Beans and Tomatoes are doing great. I have 3 wee tomatoes on one plant.
All the perennials from my friend, Susan are lookin' good.
Ain't she sweet!
And speaking of sweet...
This was my company today.
How do you not smile when you talk to a chipmunk. :)
