Scout says hi!
I love this girl and she is my constant companion!
We are getting rain today! It was a dry week but still we harvested the first peppers of the season!
And then there are the squirrels...they've been harvesting our tomatoes as soon as they start turning color:
And even when they are green:
"Operation Peppermint" has now commenced. I read that squirrels don't like the smell of peppermint and to put cottonballs doused with peppermint oil around your tomatoes:
So far so good. We'll see how long this repellant lasts.
At least the squirrels aren't eating my flowers!
Sometimes when I am watering, I just catch a glimpse of something that makes me happy. It can be sunlight and shadows on the plants or a combination of colors. It is not sensational or dramatic but for those few moments, I am at peace. I like that.
One of those things can be visitors to the garden. On Sunday, we spied the first butterfly of the season! I was getting anxious that we hadn't seen any yet so far this summer but after we saw the first one, it was like the floodgate opened and more appeared! No photos of them yet though.
My niece Christina got a sewing machine and has taught herself to sew! She's been talking to me about her projects and sent me some nice photos. Isn't she doing a good job?!!! Pillows, pet beds and toys and masks! I'm really proud of her!
Of course this means I have to mail her fabric!!!
Hope you are having some moments of peace during this crazy time in our country.
Stay safe and have a good day!
