As July nears the end..
July is almost toast..
it has been.
Dry and hot.
Farmers are struggling..
Gardens are struggling..it seems there is always something to complain about right?
My biggest complaint in July ..? Japanese Beetles..they come right after the rose chafers.
It's a wonder I garden.
Every day I squish handfuls of those disgusting things.
To salvage my flowers.
To walk about the gardens that make me exercise..make me practice gratitude for nature..make me appreciate miracles.
And now sometimes I get to see the cutest garden helpers.
Oli helped me for chores and he will come again tomorrow..
Max came and helped with the hedge..
It's one on one time..
My fave people.
One ay Noah was coming and so was Oli.. Oli had popped by a bit earlier..
this is the note he slipped his work at home mom as she was on a conference call:)
So I made amazing muffins..here's the deal though that crunchy little topping is best DAY OF.
I got rave reviews here and from my neighbours.
You can find this GREAT GREAT recipe here.
100 bulbs ..my harvest this year..All clean..cured ..ready to do..bugs don't go near it..it's just so rewarding!!
If you have herbs..gather into bouquets garnis..dry and store in a Mason jar..pop into soups and stews all yr long♥
I used Parsley Sage Rosemary and Thyme..of course;)
Cute as buttons and fun to have on hand..
These require NO work.
And I am still loving learning ..w/ Chris Petri.You tube..Save your cans to make floral arrangements.
What a Covid Summer.
What a year.
On top of all this let's think of those who need medical attention on top of all this..
And how many are waiting to see a doctor?
And then we have this hero in our midst.
You may remember Laurent~Duvernay~Tardif
He played for Kansas City and they won the super bowl when all was well..
He's also a doctor.
He is opting out of this coming season and foregoing a 2.7 million salary to help here as a doctor.
There are angels in our midst.
I think he's one of them.
I wish you well.....
PS I have watched a few Netflix series..and here are some..
Derek..not for everyone..in fact I found it too crude and stopped..and returned and well I really liked it.
Love On The Spectrum.. genuine and good.
I already told you about AfterLife.
The thing about Ricky Gervais is that I never thought I liked him
