Garden Chores Await

"Spring flowers are long since gone.
Summer's bloom hangs limp on every terrace.
The gardener's feet drag a bit on the dusty path and the hinge in his back is full of creaks."-

Jo, I am so far behind on yard work...the hinge in my back has many creaks. LOL Yesterday was one of the sweetest days. Perfect weather , after an all day rain on Saturday. I told Ted I wish it could stay this lovely the rest of the year. Hope you are getting some moments to sit on the porch. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

I feel like that cat. We worked in the yard this weekend and still have a few more things to get it ready for winters sleep.

Oh, I so would love that puzzle....I did a 2000 piece one of Maggie the Dressmaker. I would never have attempted it if the expression on the cat was not so much our Bubbie.

Love that quote, too.

Maggie the MESSmaker, not dressmaker...LOL
