Dinner is Ready and other Daily Doings.

At last a decent nights sleep in my bed!  Who knows why but I do appreciate  it when it rarely happens.

We have 2 inches of rain so far and more on the way.

We dashed out yesterday morning and mowed the yard (again) before the rains came. Max mowed the east side and out back with his larger (refurbished) mower and I did the house yard with my favorite Gravely (that needs refurbishing).

I am showing this unattractive view so you can see the mole damage we are dealing with (may they all drown in their nests). I guess I will buy grass seed once again and cross my fingers.

Part of my Daily Doings is my Yard Walk About, daily unless it is storming.

This is looking southwest.  Note porch screen is in hot sun/rainy day position.

I realized after getting cushions wet and suffering the 90° sun that I could just lower the blind.  Worked very well.

Just one more picture or two and I will save the rest for another time (poppies in particular).

My gardening is all about hardy self-seeders and here is one I love for color and contrast:

Lychnis coronaria or rose campion.  This is in the humming bird bed.

Cooking or Food (don't remember which I called it last)

Dinner is ready.  MIL is back in hospital so we never know our schedules and I like Max to have a good lunch before he has to go to town.  I go sometimes; sometimes I don't.

 The chicken livers are for me.  I don't think he has ever so much as touched one.  You can see I am old school; no pink livers for me!
