The ducks have a new yard, my future tomato and bean garden. 12.22.17
Today is the 41 anniversary of signing the papers for my present home. Everyone thought I was insane for buying a condemned house when I had three ten-year-old kids to raise. It was the only way I could be sure I wouldn't fall on a higher priced home. We lived in a tent the first summer while we let our two cats kill all the mice. When winter came, we used quilts from my grandmother's home that she had just closed down. She made the quilts on a wooden frame in her living room that she raised by pullies to the ceiling to get out of the way. She lowered the quilts when friends came over to work on quilts. They chatted, had coffee, talked about recipes and patterns for dresses and coats. and even granddad's felt hat. The quilts were made of old coats, suits of my grandfather, worn out dresses and night gowns. The patterns were lovely and colorful. She stuffed the quilts with lots of cotton so the different fibers of coats and night gowns didn't matter.
Paricia, happy anniversary.I hope your year will be full of things you like to do with people with whom you like to be with. his is a time for treating yourself and doing a little self-indulgence and pampering of each other.
Happy Anniversary Patricia!

Daniel, those day lilies are beautiful, and those peaches make my mouth water. Some cream or ice cream to go with them would taste excellent.
Joan, you got a hotter day than I did, but it's been over 100 for several days now. Good thing I started 4 kinds of watermelon this year instead of only 1 as I had planned. They appreciate this heat.
Patricia, glad to hear what Rick is doing. I was wondering also.
Plinius, congratulations on rescuing the tayberry.
Those peaches look divine, Daniel! I've lost a branch already due to weight. I never prune my trees--just let nature do it. When I visited the Smokies (Nat. Park) many years ago, I saw an old homestead with a scraggly looking apple tree. It was loaded with the best looking apples I ever saw. I decided right then, I'm never going to prune again. Mother nature know best.
The tayberry I rescued some months ago from a dumpstore starts to flower! Must be a survivor!
Daniel, 15 years, eh? So goes the adage of the wise man planting in whose shade he will never sit ... my nectarines will be for future generations.
Hot here too, and humid. And so I resort to indoor projects. :)
Patricia, Oh Yes!! whipped cream is perfect!
How is Rick's garden growing?
Are you having a temperature spike this month?
Spud, it sounds like you are having a dry spell, too. And the heat is terrible. I had to come in before 11 AM and Spokane had the highest temperature for June on record. Today was 105 degrees. We don't usually get that scorching heat until August.
OH dear! This will be a bad fire season. We had so much rain earlier and have lots of grass growing on the hills. Conditions are right for fires.
