My tank top, cut~off shorts & sweatiness tell me Summertime is finally here!! I’ve got a small furry animal atop my head in a ponytail holder because my neck said, “Heck! No!” It’s the early stages of heat~humid summer here in the Northeast, but I’ll take the sweaty heat even if I can’t have fresh summer vegetables yet.

Meanwhile, I’ve planted NOTHING at my own house, but plenty at Mr. 4th’s. Sadly, I don’t have peektures from there. I DO have a peekture of the first rose bush I ever planted at my house nearly 2 decades ago...Pinky Rose gets no attention yet comes back to me every year. She’s a gift that keeps on giving if I trim her spent blooms just right.

As for my backyard as a whole, the PAIR OF DIGGERS Mookie & Walligator have wrecked my shit. It was beautiful once, but hey, I’ll take my digger dawg’s love over a lily any day. It will sort itself out someday.
