A Great Place to Paint on a Hot Day
It's been pretty warm this summer in northern Michigan, but there is always a shady spot and almost always a breeze coming off the Bay.
We sat on the porch and painted, drank jasmine tea and ate green tea mochi ice cream.
Today I'm tearing up my garden - if you can even call it a garden. Everything is soooo out of control. It looks like one of those old gardens that was at one time very pretty, and then because of neglect, it just became overgrown and tangled - that's exactly what happened. So, I'm finding my way down to bare dirt, and we'll just see what happens when spring comes. If things come up again, I'll have to decide whether to let them grow or pull them out. If nothing comes up, I'll have to decide whether to replant or plant grass.
The tiger lilies were devoured by red lily bugs (REPULSIVE), and the day lilies and hostas were eaten by the deer. Maybe next year there won't be anything for the predators - that'll show 'em.
