Where is Summer!!!!!
The new construction on the house is almost over. Walls and ceilings have been plastered and the painting has started. A couple of more days and I expect the flooring will be put down. I will be so glad when it's all over.
I have a line up of people waiting to come out for a few days here and there. My grandson is flying in on Wednesday so he and his mother will be arriving next Monday for about four days. So, mad rush this week to get everything done. Then a friend of himself is coming for a couple of days, my parents want to come out soon, my granddaughter, her partner and dog are coming in July and we got a phone call from a friend in the states that he may be here in July and that's just the ones I've heard from so far. It's funny, some summers we hardly see anyone and other summers there are so many people coming and going that I don't know where to turn.
The weather has been miserable. We've had a few glimpses of the sun but not much. Temperatures are low as well. +3 C when we got up this morning. Never the less the perennials are growing like mad. I think it's this wet weather that they are liking.
The rhubarb is just about ready to be picked.
The chives are about to flower.
The bun keeps getting fatter and fatter.
And the frog keeps grinning and grinning.
And this fellow is feeling quite laid back.
Two of the fairies have arrived in the garden.
Oh and mustn't forget....I got my first bee picture of this season. On one of the warmer days this past week, there were a few humming around the lungwort.
