Summer arrived today, with temperatures warm enough and sun bright enough to send us scrambling for straw hats and sandals.
We mowed. We trimmed. We weeded. The orchard is finally looking respectable, and the perennial beds around the house got a good, long drink. And then, because Kim's still fighting bronchitis and my joints are still aching, we hauled out the garden furniture and put our feet up with a cool drink and a good book. Feet up: that's not a sight you see very often at Mucky Boots.
Petunia is the Lounging Queen, clever cat. She has a thing or two about setting good priorities to teach us.
