I thought this morning I would take you on a walk around the garden. This is a rose bush I have to pass on my way out to the pasture. I love this little rose bush as it always looks like it is filled with bridal bouquets.
Remember that song, " Paper Roses?" That is what I thought of when I saw these roses. I love how they have all of the contrasting colors.
The sunflowers are growing and they love the hot weather, the days that it is over 95 you can almost see them growing.
Nothing else is up so you can see it, there are potatoes and corn planted here. The herb garden is in the middle with a bed of Zinnias and beets. We didn't put the wood around the beds this year. It will be easier to move the drip lines and use the tractor to plow between the rows. The garden this year looks so much bigger but we did it so much further apart for the disk. Sorry for using the wrong word, I say plow my husband says disk.
Here is another shot with the artichoke and the tomatoes and peppers, and of course, Sasha sneaking up on my chickens. I love when she walks like that, it just drives her crazy when the chickens come outside the gate.
This is what Sasha is sneaking up on, I do enjoy watching them scratching out here but really they want to drift over to eat some of the berries that are starting to get ripe.
Here are the chicks today. One of my favorite things to do in the morning is to change and clean the cage. Give them fresh water and fresh food. It is like how when the kids were babies I loved giving them baths and putting on sleepers and getting them ready for bed, that is what this reminds me of every morning. I just love standing and watching them as they eat and scratch and make the little peeps of how good the food is and how nice the water is, just a lovely little job I look forward to doing each day.
Thanks for coming along this morning. Just all of the simple things in my life that gives me so much joy and I like being able to share it with you.
