For some reason, the weather has been wild lately. On Saturday it truly felt like summer in the morning — high humidity and heat — until we had a freak thunderstorm in the afternoon that blew the power in the theater where I was watching Star Trek; then the temperature dropped about 25 degrees all at once, and the family bbq had to move inside. Today it is barely 60 degrees and gloomy. I don’t ask for much, but I would like a little consistency. Failing that, I would like the weather people to get the forecast right every now and then so I don’t have to completely change clothes after going outside for the first time.
Enough griping — on to the garden. I just bought a few flowers and herbs this weekend to fill in the remaining holes in the garden boxes and other beds in the front yard. For now, we have agreed to let things grow and see what other holes may need to be filled in as the summer progresses. I think we are going to have an outstanding yard this year. Next, I can focus on filling in our pots.
Here are a few photos showing where we started:
