We are some-what eating from the garden. My sister left yesterday with beets to pickle and an armful of kale for her salads. We are all waiting on those green tomatoes to ripen and the peppers to bloom.
My yellow beans are really sluggish. The gardens are quite a disappointment from way too much rain.
Still waiting on zucchini, cukes & cantaloupe
While having tea with my sister yesterday we spotted a turtle walking by the mouse-house. I was so enthralled that I did not grab my camera so I'm hoping it is still in the area and will return for a visit. I've always loved turtles.
The retired-guy helped one cross a highway last week. It's not the first time he has pulled over for one. He got him settled in a grassy area and pointed him in the right direction. He (the turtle) was so afraid he hid completely from view.
I mentioned before that we have found a fun pub to lunch at in our area and that's where we headed today for a meal with friends. As of tomorrow, we will be busy with construction of our home.
Measurements need to be taken tomorrow for the foundation. The dig is Wednesday. I only hope all goes as well as the little House Wren's home building has this summer. She's been a busy little bird.
She can't seem to stop adding to this little nest.
Is she a bit neurotic or what?
I hope she adds some feathers or grass to cushion it. So far it doesn't look too cozy from what I can see.
I hope to get around to visit everyone this week.
Enjoy these warm albeit wet summer days.
I'm praying for sun-shine.
