 There has been a new type of bird showing up at the feeder.  He likes to sit in the middle of the dish.


This is what too much rain and soggy beds looks like.  In the back bed the onions are just black stumps and one poor jalapeno plant trying it’s hardest to hang on.  The front bed is in a little bit better shape.  The tomatoes are producing.  The bell peppers are a little yellow and water logged but hanging in there.  The tiny eggplants probably won’t make it.  We’ve bought 2 new jalapeno plants, 2 new eggplants and a cherry tomato.  But I’m not planting these until the rains stop.  The grass is even yellow from too much rain.


The herb garden is on a little higher ground, but is still too wet.  As soon as the sun returns for a few days the herbs should really do well.  It also has the African angel totem to watch over it.  The angel was a piece of original african art from the store I worked in, there was always something about it that spoke to me.  The original price was $86.00, I kept watching as the price kept going down.  It didn’t even sell at 75% off.  Then it got marked $5 and I grabbed it.  Everyone just laughed and asked me what I was going to do with it.  I told them it was going to be the guardian of my herb garden.  It has been doing a very good job for about 4 years.


Here is a pic of our new Pub table without the leaf extension.  We are supposed to have 6 chairs, but the warehouse messed up and sent 4 of the wrong chairs.  The four correct chairs are being delivered later today.  I’ll have to re-cover the chair seats, which means fabric shopping.


On the knitting front, I have about 1/3 of the leg of the second pink sock done, I need to hurry and finish them.  Still have to get started on Eve’s socks so they will be finished before our trip to see her in October.

7 Days til’ Josie’s visit.
