Sadly, I can’t even get out in the backyard every day to finish my 27 projects. Slow and steady wins the race. I know. I know. But slow and steady also leads me into the broiling temperatures of summer in Phoenix. So the pressure is on!
The resurrected gazebo is coming right along…. other than being upside down, on the grass, and not painted. This is the one that flew over the fence and was a mangled mess of canvas and metal.
My beloved royal blue lobelia are absolutely their happiest right now…. but they won’t last much longer in this heat.
The garden is coming right along…. beans are winning the growing race at the moment, but the zucchini is in a close second.
Lastly, for your viewing pleasure, I scored six of these lovelies at 50% Off Goodwill last Saturday… YES! Rick scrunched up his nose too at the thought of candles in the backyard, but last night I lit them all and he did think it was lovely, even though he never used the word lovely.
