Beginning of June

There is not a lot to show in the way of gardening here in the beginning of June. We had a hot spell but when the forecast showed that temperatures would become more seasonable with a good chance of rain each day for awhile, I planted some tomatoes and lettuce, spinach and lots of flower seeds here, there and everywhere.  The lettuce is coming up, the rose bush and foxglove and other perennials are still in bloom and the grass is thick and lush and needing a mow quite often.

I was cleaning windows and my youngest sons dog  ( Koopa, seen above ) was quite fascinated with this.  He stood in front of me, under each window as I pulled it out and sprayed and wiped it and proceeded to follow me around as I worked on each one.

If you have followed this blog for awhile, you know that the youngest and Koopa are staying here for awhile. Koopa ate the bark on the tree and jumps to get the branches. My son put up a fence, we sawed off the remainder of the two lower branches…and he’s still jumping :)

I am 5  1/2 feet tall and the branch that he is going for ( and gets ) is a good foot above my head. Koopa is a pit bull and this is just something that they love to do.

I picked Brent up after school the other day and he was loaded down with all of his art work, including pottery.  It was their next-to-last day of school.  The last day had an early dismissal and his mama took him and his sister to an amusement park. I have him here tomorrow ( the other 3 grands are in a different school district and not out until the 9th).

When I do sew, I am still plugging along on the hand quilting of Scrappy Granny.  I have been working on this area of three blocks and the surrounding sashing and borders this past week.

And just for the memory, our President, Tweeter-in-Chief, pulled us out of the climate agreement today. I better not quilt for awhile as I might STAB the thing to death just thinking about that.
