The weather has been pretty good lately, so I've been frantically trying to get the gardens in order and the pots on the deck planted. Sounds easy enough, but it takes more time than one thinks to get it done right.
Gratefully, today is a dreary, wet day and I can catch up on my blog reading and writing.
I finished this summer sweater just before the good gardening weather set in......
Last week, we made time to head over to Mount Desert Island to visit the Asticou Azalea Garden. Unfortunately, we were just a wee bit too early for most of the azaleas and rhododendrons, but the PJM Rhodies were in full bloom. Guess we'll have to make another trip in June to see it in all it's glory!
We made a quick stop in Somesville on our way for a photo op. I couldn't resist the reflection of the bridge in the pond.
The dooryard garden is shaping up quite nicely with many things getting ready to burst forth any day now.
The Creeping Phlox is the one bright spot in the middle of the yard.
His Majesty, Spike has been enjoying afternoons in the garden on the hunt for errant chipmunks. Good thing he's in his harness and I'm able to yank him back before the strike.
A lovely young chickadee couple has leased this house for the season and it's been fun watching all the comings and goings.
We were also graced with the presence of an Indigo Bunting at our feeder.
Life is Good!
