Beautiful day in my neighborhood.....

It's a perfect day in the Ozarks.....sunny & 80 by the afternoon.  Due to the regular rains, everything is looking lush and the garden is going crazy.

 Love this little girl statue that sits in my flowers.

Worked so hard yesterday in this small garden space.  The weeds had taken over.  Luckily, it was a beautiful day and I didn't mind being outside.  Have to say I slept all night without waking once.....gardening is so good for me, in so many ways!

Been digging some garlic and hanging it in the shed to dry out.  I think I could live quite well if I just had garlic, tomatoes & basil in my garden.

 The lavender is just ready to bloom.  A shorter type that I planted has already bloomed.
 Love this big birdcage that sits on my backporch.
Went to the farmer's market this morning and bought breakfast.....

It's the last of the strawberries but I managed to make a lg. batch of jelly and froze about 6 quarts.  There's just nothing like home grown strawberries.  The tomatoes and squash will be dinner.

I love this time of year.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

I feel like I was sitting at your kitchen table hearing all about your week dear Jan. I loved all your beautiful photos and agree wholeheartedly about how good for the soul gardening is. Especially the sleeping all night part :)
many hugs from here...
