I love getting up early in the morning and getting the day going. Especially when it gets so hot, so quick during these brutal summer days. I enjoy going outside peeking at everything in the yard as everything starts to wake up. Feeling the cool air. Listening to the birds singing. My most favorite way to start the day. Getting all the yard things done before the heat gets too uncomfortable.
There was a little spying on the garden to see if anything is near ready to be nibbled on. A big smile was made when all the goodies were seen among all the green leaves and plants. No squealing or anything like that just because it was so early in the morning. Don't want to freak the neighbors out.
But how wonderful to see the little pieces of garden candy ready to eat. There's never really enough grape tomatoes for salads or anything because they are all eaten out in the garden.
More goodies hiding.
This honestly is the best candy bowl to have sitting by the kitchen sink.
There is basil coming out of my ears. The plants are doing so awesome this year. Just amazing what happens when you actually take a few minutes to learn how to grow this stuff properly.
Then there is the lone sunflower.
Not sure where it came from.
We just left it where it started just because this plant is obviously so determined.
Then at lunch time when it gets a tad too warm to be outside any longer, I shut all the windows, turn the a/c on (yuck) and enjoy some of the garden goodies that were picked earlier in the morning.
Then work continues on the newest project started a few days ago. It's going to be massive. Not sure what I was thinking. I'm blaming it all on the heat. The dang heat.
At least it's something pretty to work on while inside, waiting for the heat to move on.
