Ina, Maria and I called an evening meeting in the Homeward Bound Memorial Garden. Over delicious Turkey, Pesto and Tomato sandwiches (thanks, Ina!) we talked through future plans.
We had our first sighting of a Monarch butterfly, but it would not sit still long enough to be photo-captured. We certainly have created a haven for them, and we hope to see more in the coming weeks.
Surrounded by Robins, Quail, and Bunnies who kept their distance, it was nice to simply enjoy the fruits of our labor as the sun dropped in the sky…
when everything takes on a golden hue…
including my Jackson, who accompanied us tonight and enjoyed Maria’s Elfin Thyme!
I’m a little biased, but I think he looks as pretty as the flowers, don’t you?
The highlight of the evening was Ina’s confession that she added another plant to her Cottage Garden bed. A talented gardener, she was concerned that the ideal sun and soil conditions were quickly creating monster successes. She issued strict warnings to us: “no more plants!” Ha! Busted.
There is always more work to do in a garden…
but tonight was more about fussing, photos, pups and friends.
A rare moment to soak up the sunset and enjoy all that has been created in the garden. Apparently, we are in good company.
