Today :: in pictures

How much stuff can one person do in a day... WOW, I am so enjoying myself doing whatever pleases me during the day. Here is part of my day today - in pictures.

First let me say that the sun was shining brightly this morning. So first thing after morning coffee and hanging clothes outside to dry - a tour of the gardens.

Potted mums and gerber daisies for our daughter's up coming wedding at the end of the month.

Mid-morning homemade iced-tea. Try a few chunks of frozen fruit in your ice tea, it's delicious.

Some very muddy garden work... can you tell.

Lunch break - cumin rice and black beans.

This evening Dave and I joined some fine friends at the Belliveau's Cove Farmers Market site to feast on lobster and steamed clams and nice conversations. It was a beautiful end (sunset and all) to a perfect day.

Your gardens look beautiful. My veggies are doing great but my flowers...not so much.

Sounds like a wonderful day! I don't get any this summer so I am living vicariously through you! Keep enjoying your time off! ;)

Your raised beds look great , our garden didn't fare so well this year. It was so dry during June , everything was stunted , the squash died , the tomatoes are very small.
I'll have to try some frozen fruit in my tea , bet that is good.
