After a few days out out of the office this past week/weekend, I'm getting back in the swing of things and catching up on a bit of work this afternoon, but I did manage to sneak in a couple hours of yard work, including getting the birdbath fountain cleaned out and ready to go for another year. Things don't yet look like they do in this photo from a previous year. The roses are looking great, though, and I bought a couple geraniums for my windowsill. I am not planning to buy much this year as I already have so many perennials. For annuals, I usually only buy geraniums, and I start my own zinnias.

There are few things I love more than roses with perhaps the exception of morel mushrooms. This has been a pretty good year for them, and my husband and his dad have enjoyed hunting them. Last week, they found several more pounds of them! I bagged them up in gallon plastic storage bags and refrigerated them to keep them as fresh as possible until we can eat them. So you can guess what we'll be having for dinner tonight!
