Evenings in the Garden








After weeks and weeks of plentiful rain, a bomb of heat and sunshine this past week has pushed our gardens into over drive. Of course, it has kicked the weeds into full throttle as well so we've been spending our evenings weeding and tending and oohing and aahing and poking and prodding and harvesting. Oh yum! Then when we're soaked in sweat and plum worn out from all this heat (which takes about five minutes) and  feel we've accomplished enough for one night, we head over to our neighbours to pool sit. It's a terrible job looking after someones swimming pool but we're cool neighbours like that.

Your garden is beautiful and how sweet of the neighbors to let you 'watch' their pool while they are away! Our neighbors just ask us to feed their horses, and goat, and lamb, and dogs, and cat...

Being a pool sitter must be even more exhausting than taking care of the garden ;)

Betty Luckhurst said...

All your hard work is paying off, I'm so happy for you! And to HAVE to pool sit is just awful!!

Jocelyn said...

Same thing here. Your garden looks great. If you ever want to pool sit here, you're welcome to it. Usually, I just jump in, clothes and all, when I'm done for the day.

Fantastic summer evening photos and you are indeed cool beans to do that for your neighbors. Good help is so hard to find these days! (wink wink)
