We have some native plants as well. Grasses, lilies, and a couple of others. They are really established now...and don't need watering.The little spruce that you see in the picture below will have to be moved this fall. We never realised that the roses would do so well...and they are crowding out the spruce. Here are the plants behind the Grotto.
I watered the whole garden...thinking that maybe the plants would like a drink on this to be hot and humid day.
I came home and brought in the groceries. Lots of fruits and juices. I always crave these on hot days. Today, we'll eat light. Joe is having leftover fried peppers and I'm having a BLT. The store didn't have my favorite brand of turkey bacon...so I am trying a new one. Some of these taste like cardboard...and most don't give off the fragrance of delicious bacon cooking. That used to be one of my summer pleasures...a nice BLT, with real bacon. I would use the bacon drippings for fresh green beans and bits of onions. The turkey bacon doesn't give off much grease, so no more beans.
My daughter-in-law just got a new coffee pot...a Keurig. It's really expensive and you buy little K cups of individual coffees. All different flavors. I saw a commercial for the iced coffee made in a Keurig...it looked so delicious. Well, I bought a new can of coffee and will try to make a delicious glass of iced coffee with a recipe I found on the internet and my old coffee pot.
That's about it for now. Where ever you are...have a nice day and keep cool.
