Thunder on our walk today – and because of that, I had to leave Shanara at home and just take Abby. But it was odd that way – the storms just seemed to circle without ever lighting down. And the bit of rain we had did nothing to wet the garden – so, when I got home from walking with Abby, and washing off the swamp she dragged back with her, I also watered the garden. And that, of course, is the great excitement of the day. Beans!
Finally! After three sowings and buying a new packet of beans, we have beans. It seems that it helps to get fresh seeds. Still – this is the first time I have ever purchased expired seeds from a nursery. Lesson learned: check the dates on the packets.
Lovely flowers on the Awesome Trail.
And mosquitoes. Okay – so I have experienced mosquitoes in my life in years past but this year? Holy heck!
I have bites on top of bites. And they’re sneaky – they don’t even buzz. They just come at you in swarms.
Lovely day anyway.
