when the window behind the couch is opened: summer is HERE



There is a window behind the couch, awkward to open and close, so it usually just comes open and stays open for summer....earlier THIS month, June, we had a couple of frosts and tons of cool weather...but with the solstice, summer has arrived....

The cat especially likes this window....


My tomato and pumpkin plants = THRIVING, and I have my first tomato blossom....


I dunno, WHY DOES the cat sleep on my sandals all day????





You will recall we had new steps built at the studio door...which have disappeared, amusingly enough, under the ferns that were there first....


You will recall I was at a garage sale a couple of weeks ago and got these super duper green planters for my front steps and pink cosmos....



My basil is going NUTS.

And here you say you have no bent for gardening! Everything looks terrific.
BTW, I think most fruit would look wonderful on your new Minty Blue glaze!

If Gary now has a green thumb, and Spike sleeps on his sandals, there's bound to be a connection. Ah, it's the open window. Everything in life is connected somehow or 'nother.

Nothing happier than a cat in an open window!

Wow, those ferns really did take over the steps. Looks fantastic! I do love open windows, ours are firmly shut for winter.

It's full bloom by you! Boy those ferns got going really quick in that spot.
