Our temps have increased a bit into the low 80’s but we really can’t complain–no humidity. The afternoon thunder showers are making the haying operation difficult as usual–it happens every single year.
Thursday morning we finished the Cowboy’s portion of the backyard flower bed remodel–we leveled the flagstones. What a chore–those dang rocks are heavy! It looks so nice and now for my portion–getting all those plants I purchased into the ground, run watering lines to each plant, lay fabric and then mulch. I’m tired just typing this much less doing it!😆
Friday evening we had a small dinner party, just seven people total and we were able to sit outside on the new patio. Before people arrived I had to remove all the place settings and pick up the foam padded chairs due to a quick rain shower. Everyone agreed it was so good to get out, see and visit with people. The food was outstanding–everyone contributed something and we provided a brisket I had cooked. And I made a new to me sangria recipe–it was sooooo good! I’m a big Modern Mrs. Darcy fan and every Friday she does a post–this one contains a link to several summer time drinks, one of which is the sangria–Links I Love.
Saturday I planted all the plants we purchased and Sunday I ran drip lines to them from the existing larger water line. The Cowboy continued with the hay making operation and all the hay is now cut and baled. You see, we were on a mission! Larry and Geri called a few days ago and wanted to meet us in the Bighorn Mountains of Wyoming. Cell service is non existent up there so blogs may be sporadic.
Our neighbor’s sainfoin hay field–it’s pink, really pink! And the elk love it!
Hope everyone had a great July 4 and that you are all staying safe.
