May 18th, 2013

The middle of May - cooler weather prevails and today, at least, we are in a grey mist, under clouded skies.

Well, it is the first day of the Annual Rodeo, so probably par for the course!  Today it's Bulls and Barrel Racing, and they will manage nicely with cooler weather.

In the meantime, back at the 'Ranch", the garden is flourishing!  I am running out of beds and pots, but this morning, while breakfasting and visiting with Dorothy,  some kind soul who had heard me complaining of the 'lack of' left an array of pots on my steps, and I thank you Carole!

The large one will be perfect for the Impatients I couldn't resist at the grocery store, no less, and I love the little goose pot which I envision with a large mass of Evening Stock and white Nicotiana tail feathers to enchant the night air with its fragrance.

The first poppy!

A welcome to the side garden.


My lady statue amongst the windflowers.
A cosy spot in the back yard for anyone who would care to join me for coffee and a chat!

I so wish I could join you. And your garden is so beautiful. My poppies didn't come back this year.
