Growing time. Growing( expanding) Time. Both are applicable. I need more hours in the day but would be totally exhausted if it happened so maybe not such a smart notion.
* Molly send your son over immediately, we'll put him to work.
*Meg - I commented to Mary that obviously the pollen didn't get to her. "Nah," she said dragging on a smoke . So someone who does not get affected by sissy things like allergies!!!!
I have been collecting macadamia nuts from under the trees and drying them on the trolley in the sun. The ones at the front have not yet split open their outer shell. They still have to be cracked after that.
Yesterday morning I mowed all the lawns. Weeds and grasses were forming seed heads and the wind had left plenty of twigs and leaves for me to collect.The sight of freshly ( neatly ) mowed lawns always makes me want to rush in for the camera to take photos while it's looking neat and tidy. So many things are flowering I can't keep up.
Usually I grow Iceland poppies ( Hello Gudrun ) but tried Shirley poppies this time.
All these ladies in my garden!
I started counting up how many flowers have people's names or is it the other way around, people have flowers' names. Many I know are named after the breeder or someone in their family. ( someone wrote a book about "Ladies and Gentlemen in my Garden." I think I have it somewhere.
