Poppy and I are inside today. 101 Degrees is forecast and that's simply too hot for working outside. I tell you what! That lovely spring weather was short lived and then we jumped right into this NC August-like weather.
Hope you don't mind another little walk through the garden. Don't worry, walking through this teeny tiny garden only takes a minute.
Waiting for that first red ripe tomato.
This old chair made a good prop for the Dill. Should I cut the flower heads off the Dill to keep the plant growing? Anybody know about Dill? :)
These "yard long" beans I planted are about half a yard long now.
I'm loving watching these beans grow.
Been a long time since I've had a row of Zinnias in the garden.
Looks like all red Zinnias.
and these pretty little blooms near the well house are wild Petunias.
Everybody in the house is napping right now, except me, of course. I was standing and staring earlier...trying to decide...should I put a post on my blog, walk up to the garden, or sew. Guess I'll get busy in the sewing room next. I've spent every extra minute lately cutting out aprons, bonnets, bag holders, and making dolls.
The Duke Homestead in Durham has three upcoming events. July 11th it's the "Pork, Pickles, and Peanuts Festival", August 8th "Summer Child's Festival", and September 12th "Harvest & Hornworm Festival". Arts and craft vendors are needed for all three events. My application has been accepted. Let me tell you...this lit a fire under me real quick! Lots of sewing to do now!
If you have never seen the Duke Homestead you can visit them at dukehomestead.org, but especially check out "images for Duke Homestead". It is a beautiful old place. Shelby, Lynn, and I did a craft show there several years ago and it was lots of fun. We dressed for the occasion in our long dresses, bonnets and aprons. Shelby and Jimmy's farm is not far from Duke Homestead.
Better get busy in the sewing room. Thank you for visiting and I will be over shortly to visit you. :)
