A Few of My Favorite Things
The weather has been spectacular. First we had a cool, rainy spring which allowed me to divide countless perennials, plant bunches of annuals and mulch all of my beds. Now we've had a stretch of my favorite summer weather with warm, sunny days that barely reach 80 and cool, crisp nights of 50. Best of all there has been no humidity. I have gratefully savored my walks and garden time, reveling in every outside moment. My gardens have never been so well tended nor my house so fresh and cool.
There was no end of beautiful moments this weekend. I realized as I wandered barefoot in my yard listening to the bird chirps and hum of bees, looking at my beloved flowers, that I was surrounded by "a few of my favorite things" (The Sound of Music). Later while walking through a local meadow with its sweet smells and glimpses of butterflies, the song kept repeating in my head. I really was surrounded by a few of my favorite things, how glorious!

I am so grateful to be surrounded by my favorite things and have the beautiful days to enjoy them. I wish the same for you.
