I am still adjusting to being home. Lots of unpacking, weeding the garden, time with my husband and dogs. We have had a very, very rainy spring and summer so far and the evidence is everywhere here at Mockingbird Hill Cottage. The grass and trees are an incredibly rich green, the gardens are lush with growth and weeds are everywhere! When we moved here almost 4 years ago, the large garden bed (which has a steep slope) had one bush, and one hosta. That was it. We moved here in August, so I did no planting until the following summer. I could only add a certain amount of plants each summer. Last year I added a few that have spread this summer and I am amazed and thrilled. I thought I would take you on a little tour (with more to come.)
Bee balm and catmint
Today the Cable Company came and fixed the phone jacks and the modem – all of which had been damaged by the lightning strike. We are fortunate. I saw a news story yesterday about houses that had been hit by lightning and had fire damage. So we are very grateful that we had as little damage as we did.
