So as promised, even though you didn't ask...this is what I look forward to most this summer.
There are some fun things coming up...getting together with family at the ocean cabin, taking some little road trips with Husband Guy, the zoo auction we enjoy every year, a concert or two that we've been kind of excited about, and to top it all off I get to be in a very special wedding of 2 people I love dearly and am so happy for...the icing on an already pretty sweet cake.
But you know...predictable old me...what I'm so excited about is my humble little garden. I am so looking forward to spending time there, and enjoying the food that we're growing this year. It's not as much as I'd hoped to plant...but it's more than I've had in a long, long time.
I look forward to enjoying fresh salads...
The little cucumbers will, hopefully, eventually climb up the arbor around the back gate. Mmm, I will slice them up with Walla Walla sweets that are growing nearby.
And the peas. I suppose they should have been planted much earlier and I should be eating them, like, now...but you may remember the tragedy and drama in simply digging their bed...oh the humanity...
And then, finally...I look forward to going outside tomorrow and finding this piece of grass in the center of the photo and pulling it up by the root.
Funny I didn't notice it when I was actually out there. This is eye-level...that sneaky grass is just quietly hiding in there, "nobody here but us pretty flowers, hum hum hum..."
So yeah, that's me. Finding my heart's desire right here in my own backyard.
Happy summer everyone.
