When I returned home I began weeding throughout my gardens. You know the old expression, " There are two things certain in life, death and taxes."? Well, for gardeners it is pests and weeds! LOL I can weed all day and still find them hidden about the plantings. Argh!
After dinner DH took his favorite sunny spot on the glider on the back deck and I headed off to my hammock in the back garden. In a short time I was on the verge of napping as I used a driftwood branch to keep me swinging, lulling me to sleep. I could have stayed there all evening. The Redbud leaves above me filtering the sunlight so it wasn't too warm, just right. When I finally forced myself onto my feet I found DH on the front porch hanging my mosquito net over my swing. When I sit on the swing in the evening I usually get hit by a flying insect and occasionally a bird comes a little too close for comfort, so I thought a net would be the solution plus it is romantic and just a fun thing to enjoy. He installed it with one of my paper lanterns with a pulley so I could bring it down closer to read at night if desired. One lady stopped her car and took a picture,LOL.
Last night...poor photo..sorry.
Early this morning...
Now I will be ready for the bumble bees that like to buzz too close while collecting pollen. Their path is blocked! I must say I feel a bit like a child sitting in a fort made of chairs draped with a sheet when I sit beneath my shroud of netting...I like it!
I'm off to my garden to gather some Daisy's, Campanula and Lambs ear for moms garden before it gets too warm. I think I will have lunch on the porch today surrounded by favorite magazines....and perhaps even a glass of wine!
Have a blissful day!
