Summer's Lease

Garden pictures taken today.


Summer is still nesting
in the garden while the leaves are dancing around.


Every morning I take a cup of herbal tea and walk around outside to see what has transpired since the previous day, and invariably I leave the cup somewhere when I stop to pull up weeds or grass, or pick lavender and rosemary.  In a little while I am going to have a tea for some ladies and we will have a tea cup location hunt. No, they wont be able to use their google on the cell phones. I will draw them maps of where I think I've been!  It could be by the clothes lines, near the tool shed, on the garden ledge, over by the water where I turn it on for the sprinkler, on the swing, and other places. I'll either give them the tea cup they find or give them a prize. Otherwise I won't see the lost tea cups til spring when Mr. S. mows the grass. I use mismatched tea cups that don't belong to a set and are not of value, when I go on walkabout.
Speaking of maps, I got a map from every place we travelled two weeks ago and marked them with the dates.  Do you like maps?  We used to draw treasure maps for each other when we were childen at home and we always hid a treasure for someone to find.




How do you like the way the leaves curl as they dry and then are blown into the house?  In summer it is the pink blossoms from the flowering trees that line the entry of the house.

Once again Mr. S. is my fashion model for a day working in the yard. I like the way his hat color looks with the white parts of the red plaid shirt.  Look at that red tree in the background. His outfit just goes perfectly.

Maybe I will see you here tomorrow!

You are so much gentle fun. Your grandkids, everyone, must love you. I hope your guests have a nice time searching for the teacups!

My husband and I enjoyed your post today while he was driving to our destination of the day.

You make for a delightful light reading on such a lovely Saturday morning.
