The View from my Swing

This is our swing on the back porch. It's where I have my quiet time when the weather is good and just generally go to decompress. This is the view from the swing....the state of California may be in a drought and dryer than dry, but fortunately we still have a little green at home.

The Zenia's in the wheel barrow Dave planted from seeds. They grow so well in this warm, o.k. HOT summer climate. I don't recall the name of the daisy like flowers (Kim if you are reading this, you can remind me what they are called), but I think they are pretty. They only bloom once and then no more for a year. I'm tempted to cut them and bring them indoors, but I only get to look at them for such a short time, it seems better to leave them where they are.

Oh I love your is so peaceful. You have to come out here and give us some lessons. Or at least identify the random things growing in our "herb garden."
