The weather has been like none other..
12 yrs ap..We were hit with a heat wave at a bad time for me..that caused irreparable issues:(
Enough of that..
We are in that wave now.
I feel so sorry for people who do not live in my surroundings with a home.. somewhere I can retreat in.
I have been getting up very early.. a few days 6 ish am..I water then.
To describe the peace..(and freaking mosquitoes lol)..is impossible.
My tree peonies are always first..the others take their sweet time..but nevertheless they arrive:)
I have been painting my people thanks to great photographers I have mentioned..
I used to paint jean jackets but..
I also used to embroider jean jackets.
I found a neat great quality kaki jacket locally for $10.00
I embroidered this panel/yrs ago..like late 1970's lol
I bought the jacket sewed the panel on..
The panel looks low..but my hair reaches the top..I had it higher..J said.. your hair is over it;) So it looks weird here.. but on its' better;)
And I am still growing it..I used my French laundry Initials..inside:)
It's not bad on:) Really:)
If I say that,you know it is true;)
Fast and furious is what happens now..
Its so hot..certain things are wilting.. the canvas..the grass..is burning.I shouldn't call it grass..the mixed bag of weeds..in truth..burning..and being on sand.. it dries things out so quickly.
It is a record I heard yesterday..May was for temps..
Only the tree peony is blooming.. the rest will follow..as for the large poppies..the buds are engorged and gorgeous..the Shirley poppies have taken:) Happy about that.My sown marigolds from my gardens last yr have taken not sure re the bought seeds.. Time will tell.
I'm being watchful;)
Irises are starting and the bees are so busy.I love having bees and birds in the gardens..
I will be complaining soon re the bad destructive bugs.
I made some sweet bee themed cookies ..
With this recipe..I rolled the dough..and din't add the sugar..I have made them the other way..but for these stamps it had to be this way..
It's wonderful having passions..it can get you through a lot in life..
Like Ted Lasso:)
Here is to a nice June for all of us.
