Here in the Pacific Northwest we are experiencing the coldest June on record in 30 years or some crazy number like that. Although other parts of the country are in the midst of heatwaves, we can't seem to get above about 52 degree's most days. As I'm writing this, I can see down the street to the streetlight where the rain is coming down at a windblown angle and the fog is drifting by. I think we're stuck in a perpetual November. Anyone for turkey and pumpkin pie? We did have some beautiful sunny afternoons this past week so I finally got my six windowboxes planted and put up. I just love windowboxes, they dress up the front of the house so much and look so cheerful and pretty. I go out every evening to talk to my little baby flowers, trying to coax them into staying strong and to let them know that summer will surely come. Just a little longer, my darlings....
The poppies are blooming and the cosmo's and lavendar that line the front walk are starting to look beautiful despite the chilly temps.
My little veggie and herb garden is growing but ever so slowly... I'm keeping the faith that by autumn we will be enjoying some fresh zuchinni and summer squash.
I'll keep you posted on the progress of this tiny garden.
May you all be blessed with happy gardening days and even happier flowers...
