I went looking in my yard for some fodder for a red, white and blue bouquet. I've got a sea of blue to pick from, but I came up short on the red front.  The berries in my neighbor's yard were the only patch of red to catch my eye.


My weeds are knee high by the Fourth of July. Luckily I have a day off to liberate my garden. If the weeds aren't enough incentive, I've got a stack of mulch bags taunting me, piling on the guilt.

But once I'm done, there's a lawn chair and a tall glass of lemonade with my name on it.

Have a great day, whether you're weeding or kicking back and enjoying your garden.
