Much Better!

That's what I'm talkin' about!
 Not too  hot and not too muggy.
 Last fall, my friend Tina gave me some plants to keep inside during the winter.  I put several of them on the back porch a few days ago and this morning a beautiful blossom had errupted.
 After chores I mowed the grass around the outdoor arena and dragged it.  Then I drove the lawn tractor out back to check on the house being built.  The pond to the East had water in it and
 I'm liking the cupolas  on the house and garage.
 There will be tons of windows in the back of the house.
 It's really quite something!
 Below, is the view they have of our property.

 See how close their driveway is to our fence?

 Other than the iris, these are the only flowers in bloom at the moment.

 Gary worked until 2:30 and when he got home he planted some spinach and romaine lettuce.
One year ago today, we were eating our own spinach and strawberries.  No such luck at this time.  We are so behind.  Ironically there was one volunteer spinach plant next to the garlic and I was able to pick enough for one salad.

 Dinner....sloppy joes and
 sweet potato salad.

 I went out to do chores a little before 7.
The bugs were bad.  It's like this frequently in the evening and the girls can't wait to go in.

Night all.

Love the flowers. My irises are starting to blossom along with the peonies. I spent part of the weekend just weeding the shade garden and mowing areas that I could drag the little mower to. Our yard will need a huge overhaul when construction is done.

Our bugs aren't bad though, but the gnats and flies are emerging with the warm humid weather.

Rained on and off yesterday which brought out lots of mosquitoes. Our guys like to hang out in the run in sheds with the fans to get away from the bugs.

Your plants are gorgeous. I think that's going to be a nice house and they have a pretty view of the farm. I would love it.
