Monday afternoon

Hi all! I can't believe its been a week since I blogged. This summer is flying by too fast.

I spent some time outside this afternoon, trying to pull some weeds out of my herbs and flowers. So many things are yellowing due to all the rain we've had. Surely we are in for a drying out 'spell'!

My cherry tomato plants actually have three little tomatoes on them despite the lack of sunshine. I'm hoping they will start producing more now that Mr. Sun has made his return. I've never grown tomatoes in pots before, so I'm not sure what sort of 'harvest' to expect.

The lilies pictured above are from my mom's yard. This is the first year that they have done so well for her. She has them in a lot of different colors. I only have the old fashioned day lilies in my yard. A lot of people don't like them, but they are extremely hardy and make great 'fillers'!

Hope you are all having a great day.



  1. The lilies are beautiful. Yard work never ends, huh? I've just about given up on it this year.

  2. Ohhhhhhh, love the pink lily!!!


  3. I grew some tomatoe's in pots last year on a harvest wasn't all that great but the first one that I got off it was as sweet as candy and worth all the effort

  4. Hey, I like lilies too, I have several and they are all doing great.
    Glad you are getting some sun, we could use a little rain.

  5. Your mother's lilies are beautiful! I like daylilies...they just seem to say summer!
