In the garden...

The foxglove have gone to seed...
So have the poppies...

The raspberries are almost finished...
The sunflowers are ready to pop...

And I'm not sure if I'll see tomatoes. I hope so!

More sweet peas!

They just keep coming....

Happy Monday!

Oh, it's hard to go to work this morning. I want to putter in the garden instead!

Dog walk.

My life has been full of stress lately, but I try to keep up some sort of routine like walking the dog (a huge stress reliever). This was last night. We ran into our friend Mona (on the left) and she joined us.  Both dogs are half Chow. Mona's other half is golden retriever and Tagg's other half is Labrador retriever. You can sort of see it in this pic, but they do look a lot alike.

Today is going to be a gorgeous day here in the Pacific NW...hope it is where you are too!

Bud vases.

I love saving/recycling little bottles to use as bud vases.
These are the first roses from my garden this year....got pruned a little late!

Flowers dropped off at my office by a friend. She has at least a dozen different varieties of hydrangeas and I got one of each! They are a "cure-all!"

Everywhere I look there are hearts! These were all on my iPhone. I was getting ready to delete a bunch of photos so I thought I'd share first. Not just heart rocks, but petals, puddles, shells and potato chips! Happy Monday!
