I have sunflower motif all over the house.
Sunflower seeds are ready for snacking.
Books about sunflowers are ready for reading.
My August journal is updated.
Birthday cards are laid out and are ready to mail.
We had an un-forecasted cool down.
High was only 88 degrees and it was cloudy all day.
I love cloudy days.
A few sunflowers have survived in the gardens.
The deer find the sunflowers and the tomatoes very tasty.
Chinese take out for supper!
I have fallen in love with roses.
I am doing my research.
I would love to grow roses in all the flowerbeds.
My friend sent me borage seeds.
I found a spot to sow them in the herb garden.
Now I wait for sprouts.
The rains watered them in nicely.
I also had some borage seeds.
These are annuals in my garden.
I will enjoy the borage while I find just the right rose for the herb garden. Next year shall be my year of the rose.
I am already making plans.
A few years ago my doctor suggested I grow my own medicine.
I was very ill. My husband said he would help me.
We put in a bed of Echinacea, Purple Cone Flower.
I have never been able to bring myself to dig the roots.
Yet the process of caring for my "medicine" has made me well.
I grow lots of herbs for teas.
I have added more Hyssop to the back peonies' bed.
I never seem to have enough for winter use.
It looks so pretty with my orange Asiatic Lilies.
My herb cabinet is filling up with dried leaves and flowers.
