Here in upper state SC, it can get hot pretty quick during the summer. So this gazebo in my backyard is my cooling spot. It is some of the best money we have spent on this house. Because the mosquitos can eat you alive, we’ll eat inside this screened in room for breakfast and dinner.
Last night my son graduated from high school, all 769 of them! It was a late night, but i was able to sleep in to the late hour of 7:30 this morning. I am out here in my room, listening to the birds, feeling the breeze, drinking some coffee, talking to God and feeling good. I want to walk around the yard and see what’s going on. Come with me.
Lets check out that garden I planted a month or so ago. DANG! This baby is doing great!
This is our peach tree. My young one, Thomas, always wanted to plant a fruit tree, so I let him pick one out. It gets to this fuzzy pit size and we get all excited thinking we’re going to be making pies. This was not planted in the right place. Someone didn’t want to dig a hole in the yard where it would get the most sun, so it sits here just on the edge. It receives lots of sun at the beginning of spring before the trees above it leaf out, then it loses out on the light. I should have stood my ground. Oh well.
I’m going to leave you with this silly guy, who watches over my flowers that I planted back in the fall and still look pretty. He makes me smile. I hope he does you too.
