Hello and welcome to Lame Post Friday, my day of random observations and half-baked philosophy. My first random observation is that our Brown-eyed Susans have started peeking up over the edge of our deck. I did not take a picture of said Susans, but will post a previous picture of these delightful flowers.
It is the time of year when I wish I had taken more effort in my lawn and garden earlier in the year. However, that ship has sailed, to use a cliche (sorry about using a cliche, by the way). I can only appreciate what already exists.
Speaking of what already exists, here is an earlier shot of my Johnny Jump-ups. They look equally as beautiful now.
To continue with what is glorious right now, here is my basil, which is even better as we speak. I snipped some off for a salad recently. Yum!
My Black-eyed Susans are doing well too. It may have been a good idea to take a more recent picture, but, you know, I can’t always do the right thing.
So here is my post: random observations of flowers. For Half-Baked Philosophy, I will offer: flowers are good, gardening is good, sometimes they are not as good as we had hoped. We must drive on.
Happy Friday, everyone!
