T Stands for Tuesday and Summer like heat !

Hello my Tuesday Friends 
I know I've been gone a while and several of you have contacted me to see what's up. I do appreciate that you've missed me and were concerned ♥ 
This pretty much covers a lot of it. 
The back flared up big time and I was forced to chill out and stay down and take lots of pain medication. I was able to get in and get another spinal injection and after 2 days of more intense pain I woke up a renewed woman :)  
By then the weather was cool and beautiful and I got  almost all caught up with the yard and garden....with lots of help from Hubby Dearest ♥
Then the heat arrived in force!!!!!! 

So here are some flower photos and a few of the veggie garden..

Not much art at all lately Still working on this one....but lots of COFFEE ♥

Random Thought for today..


  1. Everything is blooming so beautifully. Yup, its summer, but too bad about your back. Puts a damper on the gardening for sure. Hope you stay up and your feet and mobile and have a happy T day too. Hugs-Erika

  2. I was sorry to read you are having back problems again. At least you have a good doctor to help.

    I had forgotten how simply adorable Janis Joplin was. She did love to sing, didn't she. I always say I was born a decade too late, because all the songs I liked were from the 70s.

    I am in AWE of your garden. I am in LOVE. If only mine looked half as good as yours. I really MUST share mine, but it's a sad state of affairs and getting worse by the day.

    My Echinacea must not have reseeded, because they would be up by now. Sad, but true, they must be no more. Yours, on the other hand, are fabulous.

    LOVE your random thought. Wish I'd thought of that!!

    Thanks for sharing your garden, your flowers, Janis and her throaty voice, and your coffee with us for T this soon-to-be Tuesday.

  3. Sorry to hear you have been laid up for a few days, and hope all is well again now. Take care of yourself. Your garden looks great, and love how your painting is coming along, just gorgeous. That mug is fantastic! And that random thought is so true. Happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

  4. Hope you are feeling much better and are not in too much pain! I always enjoy seeing your garden, the flowers are beautiful and the veggie patch looks like it's coming along nicely too. It's so nice of you hubby to help out so much ๐Ÿ˜. Wishing you a speedy recovery and a very Happy T Day! J ๐Ÿ˜Š

  5. Sorry you haven't been well but someone has done a lot of gardening as it all looks amazing

    The artwork and coffee both look terrific

    Have a very happy T Day

    Love Chrissie xx

  6. I do hope you are in less pain now and are feeling better. The photos of your garden flowers look beautiful The veggie patch looks good as well.

  10. i´m hoping all the best for your back, pain is such a bummer!! your flower Pictures Show such a wonderful garden, but take care of yourself!! i´m a fan of janis, nice to see this Picture. happy t-day and happy summer!!

  11. Well my goodness feel better soon! I know what you mean about the heat wave.. and humidity..uughh... it can go away anytime.. Super super busy this T day so just a fly by visit.. Hugs! deb

  12. Back pain is hard to deal with, I hear. I'm hoping something gives you lasting relief.

    Your garden is a delight, and I appreciate the photos. The lizard cup is a fun choice :) Happy T Tuesday!

  13. I'm glad your back is better, Carol. My hubby has a bad back. It's the pits when he's in so much pain. Y

    our flower garden is coming along beautifully. I'm curious as to what you're still planting in the raised beds this late in the season. Or maybe there are seedlings I can't see yet. Anyway, good luck with the veggies. Nothing tastes quite as good as food fresh from the garden.

    Amen to your random quote!

    Happy T-Day! Hugs, Eileen

  14. Glad to read that you are better now - long may it last! Your garden looks amazing - so many beautiful and (to me) unusual flowers! Love the art you are working on! Take care! Happy T Day! Chrisx
