My computer broke.
Just like that.
One minute we were humming right along, and the next it was spiraling towards a slow death. My husband resurrected my photos and a handful of my favorite sewing patterns, but it was time to move on. He also bought me a shiny new computer. It’s turquoise. The trouble was, I didn’t want to take the time to get to know my shiny new turquoise computer. So I drug my feet. But our summer was so full of good things I didn’t want to let it slip by without writing about it.
So here we are again and I hardly know were to begin. Sometimes I try to squeeze everything into one big, fat catch-up post, but that will not do this time. Over the next few weeks I’ll be filling in the spaces but tonight that feels like a big task. Instead I think I’ll ease in slowly.
The cutting garden is growing. After dinner is the perfect time to wander around in it. Especially with a little one who’s been known to nibble on unsuspecting dahlias. Who likes to sink her pudgy fingers into the moist dirt and drink from the garden hose.
We are so flush with flowers right now that we put them everywhere. Bouquets in the bathroom, next to the stack of books by my bed, on the kitchen window sill… basically any flat surface in the house.
The zinnias have bloomed beautifully this year. Unfortunately I planted much smaller varieties than I had intended (seed shopping with 4 children can be distracting).
The dahlias have been such a treat. They are on the tail-end of their blooming. Most of my large white dinner plate dahlias have come and gone.
The cosmos decided to be finicky this year. They played hard to get, but I wooed them in the end.
These little Bachelor Buttons were my favorites! So easy to please. Bloomed straight away and the little pops of blue looked amazing in every bouquet. You my friend are getting a much bigger part in next year’s garden… especially if the cosmos decide to be divas again.
Good night friends. See you again soon
