Summer is slipping away, isn't it? I won't miss the heat but I will miss the slightly lazy days and the "no school bus rush" of summer mornings. I'm playing catch-up on all kinds of projects that are past due as I was otherwise occupied with preparing for the Knitting Retreats here at the farm.
My garden is starting to take off. I'm a late gardener, not really getting out and making it happen until June and July. On Monday, I planted 3 more rows of sunflowers. No, it isn't too late, even without a greenhouse. I planted varieties that will bloom in 50 to 60 days so that puts me into October for bouquets in the house. Sunflowers make the dwindling days of warmth more acceptable.
All of the kitties have moved on to other knitters' homes except for Delilah, the little calico. I have heard from all the new cat mamas and so far, so good. We do miss them. I love this photo of one of the black kitties sitting amongst the colorful chair and table legs on our porch. I must look like another world looking up from such a spot.
Good day everyone!
