    Your garden looks lovely. I wish mine looked as good, but I’m trying to be serious about water conservation. Because of the drought we had for quite a few years, we are still in recovery mode, and we’re experiencing many fires, as I’m sure you are already aware of. Thank you for the post, Victoria.

    P.S. How is Webster doing?

    Love the garden and Oh my gosh the flowers-you surround yourself with beauty and you have such a knack for it. My small glimpses into your lovely calm seeming rooms and the immaculate floors(how do you manage that?) makes me get up and run the @#$% vacuum over the tumbling tumbleweed hair masses(yes masses) of 175 lb Rottweiler and 20 lb small doggie . Life in these the golden years me -78 spouse 81 with Alzheimer’s-are not quite as golden as reported in the nursing home ads but we are still on the right side of the dirt so there is that. Anyhoo all of this to say endless thanks for all your wonderful wit,humor ,GFThingys.
    I don’t think you are aware of how many people you make happy,turn tears into smiles and rain into sunshine. Thank You.

    I planted Giant Zinnas on your recommendation and I get so many compliments just from people walking in the neighborhood!

    I love, love, love Hollyhocks — beautiful! They don’t do well in Texas, but when I retire back to the Northwest, I’ll definitely have them!

    Your gardens are gorgeous! I love veggies and flowers, but not heat and humidity. So since I moved from PA to NC, I am a hermit in the summer. Good luck with the flooring and stain. And regarding all of that basil… I’m coming to dinner!

    My cucumber plants have not grown more than an inch all summer. Something harvested my tomatoes.

    Is that a bat box in your sunflowers? We had one on our chimney that’s about to take a tumble into the shrubs. Has the freestanding hobby been successful?

    Just discovered your wonderful site. Love your projects and sense of humor (and watching you two dance). You are Magical! I do think you should work on your Jackie O. accent! It would go great with your vintage dresses!:)

    Holy cow, you aren’t kidding, that is a LOT of basil. I don’t even know how you’ll ever use it all. Hopefully your family really likes pesto? 😂
