From the Garden
My right elbow is in extreme pain from lots of weeding that I have done over the past two weeks. Has it stopped me? Not completely, but it has slowed me down. Working at the keyboard is more painful than weeding after a day in the yard. I am thinking of you, my gardening / blog friends but I may need to slip out the blog communication for a couple weeks at least due to tennis elbow that is, in my case, gardener's elbow.
Matt's Indeterminate Cherry tomato is in the burlap sack. I got this idea as I was doing my early morning jog last weekend. I lined the sack with cocoa mat before adding soil and the tomato plant.
See the graceful curve of the path of green lawn as it leads to the old apple tree? I am so proud of this path and the beds on either side. They are my design and I think they add so much to our yard.
The wisteria arbor is eye catching but it also smells sweet and enticing; especially to bees. The yellow azalea is also very fragrant .
The shadows of midday are always intriguing. Color seems to fade in the sunlight of hot days but shadows reign, providing interest for sun weary eyes.
