Kia hora te manno
Kia whakapapa paumamu te moana
Kia tere te Karohirohi

May the calm be widespread
May the sea glisten like the greenstone
And may the glimmer of summer dance across your pathways

Without care they still flourish

For the past two weeks I have been laid low with dental problems, so the garden has been left to do as it will. Thank goodness the weather has been kind, and I do have irrigation set on a timer for both the vegetable and flower gardens, so all is well. The flowers are so beautiful and there are beans, peas, the last of the strawberries, lettuce, kale, and Swiss chard to be harvested tomorrow. I was going to pick the first two plump blueberries today, but the danged birds beat me to it. The blueberry bushes are now covered in bird netting.

Your garden looks great! I'm so sorry about the tooth. When I had my wisdom teeth removed, I got an infection which was painful and stinky, but it thankfully cleared up quickly. I hope you recover soon!

Sorry you've been down with dental issues. I hope your recovery is swift. Your garden looks wonderful. I love the bright red Glads and all those lovely pots. Don't you just love this weather?
