Mornings are cool on the east patio. And we have our most closely tended pots there. In our desert air they must be watered daily. Sometime later in the season, twice a day. So they have to be nearby where we will notice their needs. There are many local gardeners who have the time or resources to have a lush garden here. But it's labor intensive and time consuming, and our lifestyle doesn't lend itself to tending gardens at this point in our lives. So our essential bit of green and bloom is pocket sized and within arms reach. And it nurtures us on a summer morning every bit as much as the other way around.
Wishing you a SPLENDID first week of Summer!
Ciao! for now!
