Well, I started out this post and was going to title it bitch, bitch, bitch. With all the work on the gardens this spring and summer, we'll be lucky to get much. The rare spring and early summer torrential rains did a number on the vegetables and fruits and now an outbreak of tomato hornworms has killed/denuded most of my tomatoes, my favorite fruits in the home garden.
But, the weeds have no problems growing. I've had poison ivy already this summer and the ticks are in plentiful numbers.
I did see a baby Buddha's hand last night on my citron tree. After nearly losing everything in my greenhouse this winter due to the propane heater running out of fuel, I have a few different citrus trees putting on some fruits.
May be able to make some more limoncello this year. I could drink that whole bottle right now (but it would kill me). But, then, I think, in spite of the 100 degree temperatures we are having and will have through August, it really isn't that bad. I can take it. I'll just stay in the house for the rest of the summer.
I'm going to the city today to see my kids and grandkids. That is what I need. Oliver chilling way back several summers ago. He just turned 6. How did that happen?
Isobel is excited to play in the sprinkler and she'll be 8 in September. Will wonders never cease?
And my baby bumblebee, Penny Lane, is about to turn 6 months old. What more can a person ask for? Or, as they say about life giving you lemons...
