Still Out There

A terrible thing happened in the Winter Of Monet. I fell in love with the Under Garden. I miss it. My enthusiasm for the Time Of Vegetation has waned.

That has not stopped me from being outside until dark a lot. The gardens are still amazing in full on Lush. Even better with freshly mowed paths. The maintenance gardener insists it be kept looking good. His body whines. There is not much left of my mind at the end of a long day.

Rest consists of moving slowly intermittently.

So I will leave you here. Click on a picture and go to the slide show. These are pictures of the wild cultivated gardens from the last week. There are a few things in here I don't show a lot. The around the 4th of July bloom peak is coming. As is always the case, who is having a banner year and who is having a bad year is ever changing.

I'm going back outside.

How very Japanese of you in the one picture. The gate is interesting. Is that how discourage linemen? All of your garden is gorgeous right now. I was very surprised by the immaculate area. I love the rocks too.

There was an immaculate area? Where?

I've never seen that garden area in pic 12. Where is that in your garden? Have I somehow missed a blog post where you made a new section?

Ah, picture 12, the gate and the immaculate area. That is actually part of my neighbor's scalped hillside of grass across the byway. The lawn mower dudes had just cut it that day. That is just the view through my head high blooming parsnips. The gate keeps hunters, poachers, thieves and rubberneckers from driving up the road. The utility company has keys to any gates they must have access through.

Well, I was wondering about the immaculate area. I thought you must have slipped a disc or something. ;)
