We don't have a formal garden space this year.With this being a new house, and not getting moved in until the first part of May, it just isn't going to happen this year.
We did, however plant some pots full of flowers and an old galvanized wash bucket with two tomato plants.
small tomatoes are growing already. The one above is "Indigo Rose", an heirloom variety.
another heirloom variety: "Mr. Stripey".
Wouldn't it be wonderful if both plants thrive, and we are picking juicy tomatoes all summer long?!
I would like to have enough tomatoes to at least have fresh tomatoes bruschetta for the 4th of July.
snow on the mountain tops this morning.
It was forecast that higher elevations would be getting snow. It started raining last night, and all of a sudden, the temperatures dropped.
were too far South, and we wouldn't get the colder weather and snow showers that the North part of the state would get.
However, we did get the rains, and we did get a touch of snow.
Today will be much cooler, with clouds lingering across the mountain tops.
All the rain we received made the meadows and mountains so green.
Such a beautiful sight.
It's been an amazing weather year.
My heart goes out to all those that have had weather related tragedies this summer.
My prayers are with them.
June has been a crazy weather month.
Attitude of gratitude:
~I'm grateful that Spencer was able to get the power washer running. It hadn't been used for a couple of years, and he worked on it, figured out what was wrong with it, fixed it for me and then power-washed the entire driveway, patio, sidewalks, gutters, and part of the street. Everything looks so nice, and it was so thoughtful for him to do that for me.
~I'm grateful for the rain that we've been blessed with. It has been a very hot and dry year so far, and the rains were certainly an answer to many prayers.
~I'm grateful for my amazing family, and all that they do for me each and every day. They are my greatest blessing!
