Summer is here and it appears the extreme heat we're experiencing is here to stay until fall. I have been out working in my gardens early in the morning . I did not have tea in the garden, instead I had my morning coffee loaded with real cream. I remembered my garden hat too. I have suffered heat sickness far too many times in my life to risk being miserable simply because I forgot my hat.
I hung a little pocket of sedums on one of the blue bottle trees.
The sage , lovage, and oregano are growing and ready to pick for yummy summer meals.
A little brown bunny ate herbs and fallen birdseed while I sipped my coffee. She was not afraid of me either.
" I myself have a coffee memory . It works best when fed large quantities of freshly roasted and ground caffeine. Early in the morning it's the only way it works at all. " A.J. Orde
