I bet God is a Sunday gardener

I went out early this morning to catch that nice, cool air.  The garden was alive with activity – but neither Hummer nor Bee would pose for a shot. 

The "crazy" or "Indian" corn my husband planted did so well, on very little water - next year we'll try sweet corn again.

The fence my husband planted with flowers and gourds and loufa and corn was really meant as a shade for the tomatoes and other plants, but it’s turned out very well. We’ve got a few nice shaped gourds, and lots of corn. 

My husband peeled the husk aside to see what was going on.

My dogs are ready to go as soon as they hear my feet hit the bedroom floor, no matter how early.

Badges is not quite a year old, and he is still really energetic, especially in the morning and evening when the air is nice and cool. In mid day, you could mistake him for a shag rug.

Right now, he is busy making trouble around the front door, trying to attract my attention by dragging his bed around, knocking stuff over, picking up sticks or old bones and dropping them loudly on the concrete outside the door. I know – why have a dog if you’re just going to leave him outside and ignore him? 

Biscuit comes to my rescue – she’ll look around and find one of his favorite toys, pick it up and wag it under his nose. That works every time. They make funny noises when they’re out there chewing on each other. 

Time to clean up dead stuff and toss it on the old  rubbish pile. Look how purple the tops of these flowering artichokes still are.

When I went outside, it looked like we might get a sprinkle.

Clouds shielded the early morning sun.

No such luck, the sun is bright and shining now, saying, “Get to work!”
