When it rains like crazy, which it has done almost every day of my staycation, I am also loving that restful time... in my room, with a nice book and a beverage, and a wonderful nap.
I rescued the iris and peonies before the deluge and we are enjoying their fragrances inside.
The pups accompany me wherever I choose to sit and we are all loving the humming bees, chirping birds and slowly floating butterflies.
At night I am serenaded by bullfrogs, tree toads and raindrops.
Ambition has left the building. I did try to get up for some artwork but the breeze seduced me into a walk.
The hosta that I moved a few seasons ago are enjoying plenty of elbow room, which they needed, to get to be the giants they have become. The lighter green Sum and Substance is easily four feet across as is the Krossa Regal. Love these sturdy beauties!
The smaller hosta are copacetic in their little circle bed, along with lily of the valley and some Siberian Iris.
Dave's driveway beds are looking both tidy and artistic at this time of year. The transplanted miscanthus grass is the perfect specimen between the fir and the magnolia. And the hosta varieties are enjoying the plentiful rain. Let's hope they don't get too burned when the summer sun arrives.
Chester is on guard for intruders, should they appear.
Here's a little before picture from our first year, in the late autumn. My how things have changed. Dave recently got another load of stone to increase the height of the wall. To think I voted NO on the stone wall originally. Wrong! I love it of course.
Today I plan to do more or less what I have been doing last week. Unless ambition arrives.
