After Soaking The Gardens


The  nights and mornings have been cool  and dewy but  the days have been sunny and warm and no sight of rain in the forecast at all  . So.. I gave my gardens a good soaking yesterday evening .

After the gardens were soaked and happy I of course looked for things to photograph !

                          Above photo the flower is atop a stock that is over 6 feet tall !   All our sunflower heads look like this and are close to popping open ! These are the sunflowers we didn’t plant lol !

              I love them as does Papa and we will  plant more for next year… unless the birdies and critters get to that first lol.

As the sun sets deep into the west ,  low down in the horizon behind the forest  by 8:30 pm  Miggs and I had a bit of play time before going in for  Papa’s and my cup of tea and Miggs tea cookie    !

     This morning was cool , dewy and foggy with sunshine but as the morning goes on the fog is lifting and the sun is getting stronger the day looks to be just wonderful filled with sun cool breezes and low humidity . Papa is out in his wood shop this morning working on a project , I love hearing the sound of the power tools . I am off to marinate the steaks for supper  for the BBQ  and put the laundry out on the line !

                                                  Until next time . Have a great weekend !

Your weather sounds lovely. South Texas is HOT (95-100 degrees) and humid. Your flowers are gorgeous.

The ground is do dry, we really need a good soaking rain. I'm only watering the containers. I've also been photographing the moon the last few nights. Have a wonderful weekend, the weather seems gorgeous.
