Hop, Skip and Jump

I saw the sunrise at the beach for the first day of summer Saturday morning.

I harvested rosemary and lavender on the night of the Honey/Strawberry Moon last Wednesday, hanging the stems to dry on the front porch. I put up a pot of strawberry schnapps, too. It will be ready for bottling at the beginning of October.

My small wild flower garden has a few blooms. My miniature hydrangeas are heavy with blossoms and the elephant ears have a long stalk edge with white bells.

  1. THIRD TRY. I am seriously NOT a fan of Blogger.

    I was here reading your post when my email informed me that you'd left a comment on my blog.

    I will be by here in October with my aperitif glass and I willwant a sip or two of your yummy Strawberry Schnapps.

  2. I forgot how annoying it can be sometimes.

    I hope the Schnapps comes out good. Waiting is the hard part.

  13. Looks like you will have to make sure you have enough Strawberry schnapps for everyone in October.

    All I have in my "garden" are pansies and marigolds. I have no idea what flowers Hubs put in the back.

  17. I'll be dropping by in October as well! How about if I bring our special Boomer Diva Martini to go along with your Strawberry Schnapps?

    My ex and I spent a fall on the beach and it was heavenly. As soon as we left, it all went straight to hell!!!
