Saturday in June.

More cold nights lately with temperatures getting near freezing.   Not bad during the day though.  Good temperatures for working in the garden.   I've been so busy outside this past few days.   By late afternoon yesterday my body was aching so I decided that in the interest of being able to go out at it again today, I'd better give it up.   I often think when looking around that I've gone far beyond my capabilities in making so many gardens.   In fact yesterday while digging up some sods I was wondering how much longer I could do this and would at some point, if I didn't want it all to go to pot, would have to hire someone this time of year to do the work for me.  

This morning I'll tackle what my mother calls the "rock" garden.   It's become completely over grown.   When it's cleaned up, I have a few buckets of compost left that I'll dig into the soil there.  I have to admit that I do get excited when I have a challenge like this and can't wait until it's looking good once again. 

A few of the early plants are in bloom and it looks like the black currant bush will be laden down with berries once again. 

Saskatoon berry tree.

There's a tiny fairy there among the rocks.

Pan overseeing one of the gardens once again.

beautiful pictures especially the little fairy and the cute little helper peeking up.
same questions as you on how long i'll be able to do yard work. already having problems due to health issues. frustrating when try to do as i did a couple of years ago.
i'll manage something. no matter how small... the green and blooms are to big a benefit to give up.
thinking of you and sending wishes of energy and Blessings to come your way.

I don't envy you the hard work, but it looks so pretty that it must be worthwhile.

Beautiful garden! I really like the statues, especially the tiny fairy...I had to look really closely to see her, ha! I love the photo of Tommy. He looks like he's thinking, "I see you over there with that camera!"
