Catching Up

Good Morning everyone! It is supposed to reach the lower 90's today. That may not sound hot to some, but factor in the 80% humidity rate, and it becomes overwhelmingly hot!

So, this morning, I am off to work in the yard. A few things on my "To Do" list are:

1.) Secure the Hollyhocks
2.) Weed the vegetable garden
3.) Pest control in the vegetable garden (on the hollyhock also)
4.) Plant the Lambs Ear, Alyssum (a perennial) Panorama Red Shade Bee Balm (love, love love Bee Balm) Arizona Sun Gaillardia, and the Snow Lady Shasta Daisy
5.) Work in the "Over the Fence" garden by planting more Walkers Low Catmint, and Rosemary
6.) Feed the birds
7.) Make sugar water for the hummingbirds
8.) Finish laying mulch in the front yard

When all this is finished and if I am still able to move, I will begin my chores in the house!

Nothing happens until I finish my morning cup of coffee and my vanilla yogurt with homemade Banana Nut Granola!

I hope to be back with photos - if I survive the heat!

Pin It Now!

Well Ms. Cynthia-how nice to see you!

Looks like you have your work cut out for you. When you're done in your garden can you pop over and sort mine out please? It's nowhere near as hot here so it should be quite a pleasant change for you!

Hello Cynthia.
Long time no see. Does this mean you're not working now?
Sounds like our summers here, humidity is ick!

I am so partial to hollyhocks! Sounds like you have your garden work cut out for you.
