Oh hello, large, bulbous planter filled with goodies ๐Ÿ˜

Personal veggie allotments like this one in Toronto's Bloordale village are our connection to agricultural tradition. Fruits of our labour are beginning to bolt, form, and grow into maturity!

1. Sounds of the season include song birds, buzzing sweat bees and pollinating flies, wind rustling leaves and pushing a windmill, plus cooing of domestic yard birds ready to fertilize and peck away the pests. Urban farms are full of summer beauty! Dill, tomaties, lilies, marigold, peas...hear the impact of newly created airways overhead (left here on purpose to accept the limits) 2. Cucumbers grow on this low lying vine.

3. Planting potted borage into the veggie rows in hopes it will thrive better in the ground.

My garden today!

This week was relieved by some pleasant breezes. My eye has been on the different manners of celebrating wind in this weeks gardens. I saw wood crafted mills spinning and clanking, clay bells clinking, gorgeous shiny chimes slowly ringing but this handcrafted metal chime is by far the most unique! Made from salvaged iron pieces from the local rail yards this piece sounds fantastic while also celebrating the sounds of this historically rail based community.
What can you use to harness the wind in your garden? Power generating windmill? Homemade fork chimes? A wind sock or flag?

Watering watering watering.... ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ฆ seems like all I do is water. The Geraniums donโ€™t mind the heat and they are pretty tolerant if I donโ€™t get the water to them everyday. They certainly are a work horse in the garden. Old fashioned but I love them. Non stop blooms all summer.

Another very very hot day here. My water bill is going to be astronomical ๐Ÿ˜ฑ but thatโ€™s ok the garden has to have it. We have a houseguest for a few days. Pierre the French bulldog. Bonjour... he speaks English...good thing because my French is extremely limited. Other news... no sign of the raccoons. Iโ€™m hoping that the baby who fell in the waterbarrel is alive and well. Must go and water the garden now.
Have a great Sunday everyone.

I always enjoy the butterflies passing through my backyard.
Ever since I naturilezed my backyard with perennials, I've been getting more of these beautiful visitors. .

Warning... sad story... yesterday morning as I was having my coffee I heard screams coming from the bottom of the garden. Raccoon screams and not the kind when they are fighting. I went to see and found one of the babies in the rain barrel. I put a shovel in and it climbed out. It took a while but it recovered. A while later it was in the tree with its mother. All good I thought. Then about an hour later I hear the screams again. I ran down and it had fallen in again but this time the mother was there and pulled it out. But it was in rough shape. Just laying on the pots by the barrel. I went and got gloves and got it to open ground and rubbed its back and it came around but itโ€™s back legs seemed to be broken. The mother came and tried to move it. Then it dragged itself under the potting bench. At that point there was nothing I could do but wait and see if it recovered. Later in the day I went down and it was gone. I hope itโ€™s ok and back with its family. I have a cover on the barrel now. All the years we have had the barrel and never any problems with it. *

I had my last official work day yesterday before maternity leave and am feeling so incredibly grateful for the support and encouragement that I received from my work family @earthinc. Landscaping isn't a typical job for pregnant women, but that doesn't mean we can't do it. If it's what you love to do and doc says it's okay, then go for it! I'm starting my mat leave at almost 8 months pregnant and feel like one strong mama because of it!! Thank you again for all the wonderful memories this season!! #earthinc #34weekspregnant #mamatobe #pregnantlife #gardenerlife #botanicalwomen #girlswithplants #horticulture #torontogardens #landscaper #gardener #gonnamissmygirls

Monday afternoon and itโ€™s hot and sunny. Hubby has gone sailing and Iโ€™m just relaxing in the gazebo while the sprinkler is on the garden. These Drumstick Alliums are a fun addition to the garden and come back each year.

We love the milkweed on our patio! Today, this Monarch laid an egg (top pic and bottom left). Further investigating led me to the caterpillar (bottom right) which will one day turn into a Monarch Butterfly. .

The Day Lillyโ€™s are blooming. This one I have tons of and there are other varieties coming. The weather here is perfect. Almost no humidity and mid to high 20โ€™s.... my back is still keeping me from doing to much but itโ€™s on the mend. *

Oh! We have two new windows going in as I sit here. So both windows were old a leaky so that means some wall repairs and paint. Winter project! Upstairs bedroom and bath.

I just checked my watch and the sundial is almost right. My Dad was visiting his Brother in England who had a garden and pond business. This sundial came out a very old garden and he brought it back to Canada for me. My Brother the blacksmith made the post for it. It was the last gift my Dad gave me before he passed away. So itโ€™s very precious to me.

This is part of my work area at the bottom of the garden. The bath tub is planted up with things that have nowhere to go right now. Also some seeds popped up as I throw the kitchen compost in there.

Came across this gorgeous tree and met the sweet Portuguese lady who tends to it. Sadly, when I asked if she knew what kind of tree it was, she said: โ€œno speaka da Englishโ€. Look at those pretty pink tips on this perfect Saturday ๐Ÿ˜
