A friend of mine moved to the beach one year, and I asked her
how she loved waking up every morning to the sound and the feel of
the ocean. From my perspective, I see the beach always in sunshine and warm
She told me about June Gloom. I never had heard this term before. She explained
to me how it is cold and gray and you have to wear sweat shirts. I had never experienced
it until this year. Today is one of those beachy June Gloom days. It is lovely to walk in
and wonderful to work in but I need some sun just a bit. All of my chickens act like
they have colds. I broke down and put antibiotic in their water. They all look
like to me little old ladies bundled up in afghans and wraps against the cold.
All they need to look like perfect little old ladies is some knitting and a cup of
tea. I keep giving them blue berry muffins and spinach. You know to build them up.
This is our avocado tree. It has never looked better.
It loves this weather. I was so surprised to see how it is
thriving in this cool June weather. The orange and lemon trees
look just as pretty. The one thing I am really excited about is
this tree is just loaded with avocados.
That is what a tiny avocado looks like, the tree is just
covered in these little tiny things. I hope they stay
on the tree. For now though I am so excited. This tree
has never produced like that.
My flowers love it too. Just not my silly sunflowers.
They want some more sun to grow. I just had to show you
how big the Cinderella pumpkins are getting.
I have been outside and I now it is time for a bit of
rug hooking and some other sewing. That is what is
nice about June Gloom, outside doesn't call me quite so loud.
Have a lovely day,
