After a couple of well needed rainy days, the weather has been wonderful.

These past two days, it’s hot but with low humidity so you can actually enjoy being outdoors. 

 I was finally able to catch up on my yard work and see what is going on out there. 

I have plenty of blooms putting on their show as well as weeds that needed to be pulled. 

The flowers make the weeding all the easier with their cheerful little faces. 

My muscles may be sore from all the weeding I am finally able to get done, but when I look out at the garden…

all is right with the world.
