I took these photos yesterday while enjoying a cup of coffee outside. The clouds kept it refreshingly cool for part of the morning. I enjoy the early morning. It gives me time in the quiet, still hours to meditate on the beauty of creation and the wonder and majesty of my God.
Yesterday afternoon heated up. It is forecast to be hot today. I realize that many of you reading this post have been enduring triple digit temperature for TOO LONG. May a gentle breeze refresh your tired spirit today. 🙂
I spent part of yesterday morning pulling weeds in my rose garden. The earwigs are thriving this summer. Since we had a mild winter and then things warmed up early it has propagated an abundance of these creatures. My dahlias have really suffered from their continual munching. I have used diatomaceous earth around them but it hasn’t seemed to slow them down any. Our potatoes are already dying back. Here in the northern part of the States harvest generally comes later for all our produce. We picked apricots yesterday. MORE EARWIGS! There is a robin nesting in one of the trees so she did not appreciate our intrusion. Sorry no pictures of the nest holding two little blue eggs. You cannot hold onto the ladder, hold a camera and duck from an angry robin all at the same time. LOL!
Have a blessed and beautiful weekend! From my contemplative garden, Debra.
