It’s been way too hot outside for any yard work, but I can’t stand being cooped up in the house. The solution is to sit in my favorite outside chair. You might notice that most of our outside chairs look the same, so favorite is more a spot than a type. I love sitting under the trees in the back yard. The boys spend time by the picnic bench or in the sunroom. I take a book and a camera and usually nod off in a short time. It’s OK because I have nowhere to go and all day to get there. Chipmunks, squirrels, rabbits, all kinds of birds, bees and butterflies are all over the yard. All the aches and pains from garden work evaporate when a rabbit stops a foot away from me or the baby ducks show up for lunch. The pics are what I see from my favorite chair with a few extra thrown in at the end. As you can see, I’m not very turf lawn centric. I mow it about every three weeks with a push mower.
Pat and I are off to Buffalo Thursday for Buffa10. What a hoot this is going to be visiting with garden bloggers and visiting gardens.
