A couple of months ago we were asked if we'd like to be a part of a neighborhood
garden tour. It's kind of hard to know what your garden is going to look like in August
in May. I was kind of nervous because we've had a hot, record breaking summer this year.
But we watered and weeded and mowed and pruned and the garden
never looked better.
Way to go garden!
Our window boxes needed water at least twice a day all summer long.
So did anything in a pot.
The zinnias, of course, loved the heat.
Come on in to the backyard.
We had a record setting crop of Asian Pears.
The perfect spot for a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
Don't they just taste better outside?
The garden tour was last week and now the pressure is off.
Time to just enjoy the last few weeks of summer 2012 in our garden.
