Hiding In The Gardens

This morning it is sweltering outside already, so it will be a day indoors for me.
I've been enduring the heat and humidity for weeks as I've been outdoors planting and tending the gardens, but it is beginning to make me tired and things are getting quite messy inside.
In the evenings when I can't garden any more I've been doodling. It's something I use to do a lot, but haven't in a while.
Most of my doodles resemble plants I guess. I must have gardens on my mind ; )

Then there are the trees……….
Love this Twisted Baby!

 We've planted 10 trees in the past few days.
There are willows and twisty curvy ones and weepy ones too.
I hope I'm around long enough to see them reach maturity.
These pink leaves are just gorge.
We planted 3 of these.

 The herbs are doing well.
These ones are in the center of the vegetable garden.
The ones around the tub I planted last week and they are taking off already.

My sweet husband came home with this beautiful arbor last week.
I am planning to plant wisteria along the sides.

We will have fresh lettuce from the garden tonight.

And flowers on the table.
I think I will leave the chamomile right where it is beside the daisies.
I just can't stand the thought of cutting it. 

 The rock garden has some interesting plants as well.
Soft short creeping ones 
 and tall sharp ones.
 This popped up out of nowhere and I don't know what it is.
A weed maybe or a remnant of some sort of grass that I planted last year that didn't make it through the winter except for this one lonely sprout?

The mulch is growing it's own interesting fungi from all the rain we've had I suppose.
I'm amazed at how this stuff just shows up over night.

It's been a busy Spring and Summer here so far.
I'm planning to take an evening to visit some of my favorite blogs to see what everyone else has been up to.
As always, thanks for stopping by!!!

  1. Hi Miz Karen Ann!
    What great post! I love your doodles, so creative my friend. they would make great fabric. I have fabric on the brain these days.
    10 trees!!! Wow your garden must be wonderful, the lettuce looks so good. The arbor was a neet thing for your man to bring home.
    We have healthy peanut plants, okra, and tomatoes going on. My sister is up from FL, we spent a day shopping in TN, just us. I got a mess of fabric from a quilt shop.
    Life is good,
    Love ya!
