So what have you been up to? I've been in the backyard working on cutting back my roses. It doesn't take many days of hot weather for all the blooms to come and go and leave the plants looking a little worse for wear. So it's pruning season. I've got a fresh sharp pair of clippers thanks to a practical Mother's Day gift, and I put them too good use.
One last flower back there. Always sad to see the yard get crispy and a little burnt looking. It's been ingrained in me too long to conserve water, having spent many years in drought conditions, so I water enough to keep things alive, but my yard will never be the lush green oasis that I'd love.
I do treat myself to a few pots of pretty flowers for my friends the hummingbirds. I haven't seen much of them back there, occasionally one will fly in for a drink. I'm always so grateful to see them.
Bret has the day off tomorrow so I will wish you a happy weekend now. See you next week, come by and tell me what you were up to. xop
