A quick tour of our little garden. It's looking good. The pictures are mostly of the northern end, which gets more sunshine and is blooming. The southern end has lots of buds, but no blossoms yet, except Aunt Laura's iris, which are done.
One of my favorite things in the garden is the rate the wooly thyme is covering the ground. Here behind the bench it's even begun to grow over my flat stone engraved 'Blarney Stone'.
I bought a Canterbury Bell, to help fill in the north end of the garden. The two butterfly bushes behind are close to opening their yellow buds. Away down, the south end is packed with more plants than I remember names for. The sedum blossoms are set, and two different bushes with blue flowers are getting ready to bloom.
Back up at the house, pig now has a pot of gerbera daisies. All's well with his world.
I think we have summer filled in pretty well. Sunday we're going for a week to the Charleston, South Carolina area, to visit my BFF, Carol.
In July we'll spend almost two weeks in Wisconsin, and take in some sights. Most importantly, I've arranged a tour of Taliesen. All my reading was that it's stiff walking and all the tours are in the neighborhood of four hours. I'd be left in the dust in ten minutes. I considered sending Laura and Ann, and waiting in the tea room, and then thought, Call Them! Great inspiration; For three week's advance notice, they will make a handicap accessible tour of any regular tour, for no extra cost. Beyond wonderful.
Laura and I will take the Wisconsin Dells boat tour of the river around the bluffs. We will go to Dr. Evermor's Park, built of junk, and Cedarburg, for sure. And some other destinations. That is July, and plenty of time to plan.
I have been weaving, and coming to grips with the fact I must do something about my bone on bone left shoulder. Of course, first I needed a plan, a strategy. I have it! I will see the young whippersnapper surgeon the orthopedic fellow who set my shoulder recommended. Actually, I was never in doubt about who, only if.
I cannot weave much longer, and don't know about the length of rehab, and all those sorts of things that bother me so. But now I have it!. All the orange thread is woven; I've begun the garnet, and have some more colors staged out. I'll see the surgeon when we come back from Wisconsin in July, and get down to business.
By then I will have three or four sets of colors done, and can spend my "recuperation" getting them hemmed. Always need a plan!
