As soon as possible in the spring/summer, I cease wearing socks. I go barefoot in the house and slip into my shoes when going out. I think this habit is leftover from my years in the jungle when I barely owned socks.
Barefoot season came early this year, but it seems to be retracting a little. Wind blew a bit of welcome rain and less welcome cooler temperatures over night. The garden is delighted.
I'm terrible at remembering the names of my plants. I know this rose is a floribunda, but have no recollection of the name. Still, "what's in a name?"
I do remember the name of the rosebud in the top photo and this open one - Secret. It's very fragrant and blooms throughout the summer.
A raindrop clings to a stalk of lavender about to burst into bloom. I think it's my potting bench in the reflection.
This evening I picked about a pint of strawberries. So early. So sweet and delicious.
Five things from my garden for this week. I'm looking forward to a long weekend with Monday off. There are weeds to pull, pots to plant and radishes and beets to thin. Other than that I'm looking forward to puttering and relaxing. What do you have planned?
