Today the garden chores have slowed down. I got up early since the heat and humidity has come back ...and picked 2 gallons of blueberries. Hubby had to run out to the DILs to get their dog. She had died last night so he brought her home since we have a back hoe and buried her here. She was a big bull dog and DIL didn't want her girls seeing her dead. We have also blanched and frozen the peas we shelled yesterday. Next we plan to put up bread and butter pickles. For those of you who do not know what they are...they are a type of sweet pickle. Then I hope to find some time to work on organizing my studio and hooking on a new rug.
I did want to show you a photo of a baby bird we found. It is a brown thrush baby. We thought it couldn't fly and had fallen out of the nest but when I got close to it with the camera it flew up into our fig tree.
