Dandelion Days

Summer possibilities
last only ninety days at best
and weeds upon weeds color
each day with abandon.

Ha ha ... every cloud has its silver lining, and every summer has its weeds in the garden!

I love when "weeds" turn out to be a thing of beauty. It's all around us if we just take the time to enjoy and look. Hope the rest of your summer is wonderful! Hope your health is good...thinking of you and sending Ohio hugs your way!

Good lord that looks near to be an urban farm and a boatload of work for more than 90 days.

By your pictures it looks like you have a very pretty garden. Here, we have trees and ivy, and that’s about it. The Water Commission is working on digging our front yard to place their huge black pipes in the ground – I am taking photos (I may show them in a future post.) It is difficult to watch them clear everything to just the red clay.

Another much more difficult thing for me this week has been to read about the earthquake in Italy. I have been using my Italian as I can’t find enough information here, so I have been reading the Reppublica and other Italian publications. I spend much time reading on it. I went on vacation to San Benedetto del Tronto, which is not that far from the area – I read many injured were taken to the hospital there. I feel so sad for all the senior people who lived there – what will happen to them, their way of life is no more – the houses that were in their families for generations, all the shops they knew, their neighbors, how terrible and painful – un vero disastro! Sono molto triste.

Due to record rainfall this summer the corn and soybeans did real good and the weeds broke the all time records. And my lawn required mowing once every four days due to phenomenal growth rates....:(

Summer is fleeting. Weeds are not, I''m afraid. :-)
