Here it is, June 18th and it feels very much like summer. I took some pictures yesterday and wanted to post how lovely the upper garden area looks.
Tim and I love sitting around the contorted filbert, which is an interesting tree all year round. That’s my stained glass piece hanging from the gazebo. I love the shadow of the gazebo against the pavers. Very cool.
Getting any dog to sit still and look at you at the same time for a picture is really difficult but I have tricks up my sleeve! Whenever we are about to go ‘bye bye’ I ask him if he wants to go with me. So I asked him that and you can see by the look on his face that’s he’s very keenly listening to me, and unbeknownst to him, posing very nicely!
I was cracking myself up by putting my hat on Brutus but he wouldn’t sit still and I couldn’t manage him, the hat, and the camera all at the same time so this was as good as it got for a picture. But I was laughing and he seemed amused too.
I just love these gorgeous pink roses that Tim picked out two summers ago. They grow amazingly well and are quite romantic, not to mention frame everything in the garden so spectacularly. Oh, and they smell heavenly. It’s a real pleasure to be in the upper garden and have the breeze waft this fragrance all around me.
