Busy me.

Hello, friends!

The cool thing about a garden is that it keeps on growing at its own pace while the rest of my world seems to be going in full-speed-ahead. I spent last weekend working on a birthday gift for my sister {still not done with that!}, and I enjoyed some time outside on Sunday morning playing in my garden and taking photos. The sunflower seeds I planted are getting taller and taller, and our basil plant is going crazy. Here are some of the photos I took, just in case you'd like a peek at what's growing around here...



I know, I'm not supposed to let the basil plant bloom - I just couldn't resist a photo of this beauty, before I pinched the top off.



My guy.

And that's it for now, friends.
We're alive and well and busy and happy.
How about you?
:o)

It's been madness here between the end of the school year, father's day and birthdays. But I know that in just a few days, we'll be slow and hot and lazy - just like summer's meant to be! Love the garden - the cook's kinda cute too! ;)

That's a great looking BBQ spot you have there. It looks lovely!

I can't grow basil for love nor money!! Any other herbs-no problem, but basil- failure every time!

Love the whitewashed walls - great BBQ spot!
What are all the black things? Is that for irrigation?

I see pesto in your future! We set up the sprinklers on automatic before we left in the hope that it is still living when we return.

Aww...I loved seeing a picture of Douglas at the end. <3 Your garden is pretty cool and I wish green thumbs were genetic.

I am fine but busy. Busy. Had some fun playing cards with my girls today. They actually didnt snarl at each other.

Mom said...

I'm alive and happy or in other words, happy to be alive!!! Love the way your garden/yard is shaping up. Bless your little green thumb! Hi, Doug! Love you! xo

Carrie said...

Amy said...

Yes, nothing else but pesto ... you will certainly have enough basil!

Beverly said...

Looks like the perfect spot to pull up a chair and enjoy a cold one while chatting with you and Doug :) Hope the rest of the life slows down for you very soon!

I envy you your basil plants - I can't grown them at all - now oregano is another thing - I can't get rid of it. :)
