Tonight was a fabulous night to work in any garden and this one is makes it fun. As I arrived some large, immature Bald Eagles were circling low over the edge of the the property where I was working as well as out over the lake across the road. It made it hard to focus on the plants with those gorgeous raptors circling above.
As I waded through the hostas cutting their flower stalks a group on five Harleys roared past and were waving and shouting hellos to everyone who would listen.
Though the weather here has been unbearable most of the summer, at least there have been a few days of what I call real gardening weather. I would love to be a gardener on a regular basis if the weather were cooler than this summer has been. Maybe I need to move to Ireland where the cool (and even sometimes dry weather!) is the norm!
