Summertime afternoon temperatures are now in the 80F - 93F range. I work outdoors on garden projects starting at 6:30 am. I rest indoors in the afternoon and evenings.
July Gardening: Quotes, Notes, Lore and Chores
"Summer is the time when one sheds one's tensions with one's clothes, and the right kind of day is jeweled balm for the battered spirit. A few of those days and you can become drunk with the belief that all's right with the world."
- Ada Louise Huxtable
I worked on the area by our mailbox at the southeast edge of our suburban lot. I weeded, planted more lavender, and placed wood bark chips on the area under the crepe myrtle tree. My neighbor, Dick, keeps a very nice front yard and garden.
I worked on the area to the garden bed area immediately to the west of our front door. I still have work to do to complete this morning garden project.
Where is the Bee—
Where is the Blush—
Where is the Hay?
Ah, said July—
Where is the Seed—
Where is the Bud—
Where is the May—
- Emily Dickinson, Answer July
