A Bit Of Summer In Our Yard


Well Papa fixed the wingback chair leg from yesterdays post , it  looks awesome cant tell it was cracked at all and it is strong  .

The weather has been hot, humid and sunny not much rain  at all so hosing the gardens with sprinklers has been an event each evening .

I went about the yard and took photos  .

Your gardens are looking lovely Elaine. We are having rain showers on and off today, so its a bit of time outside and when the rain stops its a bit of visiting on the internet. :)

Hi Elaine! Your porch and your gardens are really lovely, as is your girl Miggs, who always is! I think I may have mentioned to you that mine are showing the neglect of this season, that I hope I can undo some of. Our weather has cooled too thanks to the edges of Hurricane Arthur.

Take care, and enjoy your weekend.
