Coming Up for Air

This! This is how I’ve been feeling lately! Scattered? Yes. Overwhelmed? Absolutely. ¬†Physically sore? Indeed. The outdoor to-do list seems endless during the spring months: unceasing weed pulling, starting seeds, working on new garden projects, assessing damage from winter and then replacing or moving the plants that aren’t faring well, and then there’s planting the vegetable garden beds, sprucing up this corner or that one, checking irrigation…phew! Now where in the world did I leave that shovel?

But here we are in mid June and as I look around I can breathe a deep sigh of relief. The maintenance will continue but we’ve made it through the spring garden chores frenzy. It does feel so good.

The air is fresh. Flowers and foliage are vibrant. Butterflies and hummingbirds are fluttering and swooping. Birds are singing. At last there’s time to sit and enjoy all the beauty in the June garden. I don’t want to miss a thing! Please join me in taking in all that’s going on in your garden too.

Here’s some of what’s blooming right now:
