In the Garden

Today is a scorcher with the temperature approaching 30 degrees C. It's exactly what we've been waiting for - at last, some hot summer weather! At the moment, the sprinkler is on, and the garden is getting a much needed soaking.

The lilies are almost ready to burst into bloom.

Somebody has been in the strawberry bed and left this half eaten strawberry on the stones at the front of the garden, no doubt returning for it later. I don't really mind. Squirrel and Chipmunk think it's their patch, too and harvest what they can. I'm a little smarter though and try to get to the strawberries before they do. HA!
