opting out

Last night I opted out of gardening. I can hear that collective gasp of shock from here. :)

When we got home from work last night and did the usual 'walk around the yard looking at the new growth' thing, I swear I was mosquito-bitten a dozen times in under two minutes. I just couldn't take it, so I declared the evening garden-free and hid inside instead. We watched an old rerun of "Nine to Five" on tv.

Tonight after work, I have a pedicure. :) So that will likely be another night off from the gardening as well.

But I do have some new great pictures on the way. The irises started blooming just two days ago, and the oriental poppies started blooming yesterday.

Also, I now have mid-way and finished shots of this year's big garden project so y'all can see some of the work we've put in this year.

But give me another day. I've not gotten the digital camera to web photo routine down pat just yet.

'S OK, Karen ... I had a night off too. Fortunately, it was breezy so the mosquitos and black flies were hiding. My chores were, for the moment complete, so I relaxed outside with a book.

Actually, I jumped up a few times to do tiny little garden chores, but settled right back to my book.

Ok, I admit it, I only stared at the same page in the book, but was really looking at the garden, planning my next project.

I am hopelessly addicted to gardening.

Look forward to the pics!

The last 2 days have been the first in a long while that I haven't been furtively scratching my bites at work. I've found that they don't start itching until about 24 hours after the bite. Guess I need to get back out into the garden.

I feel your pain!
