Tales of a British expat, transplanted into the lush Tennessee countryside. Lover of old, time-worn, and antique. Tea-drinker, flower-grower, animal-nurturer.

Incredible blue skies and sunshine today. Lots of the stuff, it surely feels like we are in the midst of summer with this 92 degree heat.
We have our little great-granddaughter today, so after a few short walks around the garden, it's going to be a day of porch-sitting, and lots of hugs and kisses.

Through The Garden Gate
We are in for a week of HOT weather, the kind more suited to late summer days.
The songbirds have taken to their nests, they have been busily feathering and fluffing.
Schoolchildren are excited to close the books on another school year.
The Lightning Bugs have returned, twinkling their way through the darkness.
And the rhythm of life continues....

Dark Skies And Planting
Our sunshine seems to have done a bunk, hiding behind ominous dark clouds.
I'm spending the day weeding, and pulling, and planting and pottering.
May days are always hectic, and my "to-do" list is not getting any shorter; so best-foot-forward and hopefully I'll have made a difference by the end of the day.
Hope your day is a sunny one !

Drive along any country road in Middle Tennessee during the month of May, and you can't help but notice the fields are covered in yellow flowers.
The Meadow Buttercup ( Ranunculus acris ) is gathered for it's annual parade, it's bright, waxy petals, waving in the spring breezes for all who care to enjoy.
