Hey there, Fiesta Friends! It might seem to you that I’m somewhat absent from the blogosphere. What with not answering your comments and all. That’s really inexcusable! I’ll try my very best to do better, promise.
The truth is I’ve been busy with the garden. Inspired by Gardener’s World, I’ve been giving the garden a hard look, trying to figure out ways to improve it. It’s looking a bit jungly at the moment. I kinda want a more wild flower-ey, meadow-ey look.
My daughter teases me for having an imaginary rivalry with Monty Don. I suppose I deserve it. I’ve been saying Monty did this, Monty did that for a whole week in trying to justify digging up one whole side of the backyard, creating yet another border. A very large border needing dozens and dozens of plants! Right now it’s just an ugly patch of dirt, but in a few years, it’ll be just like Monty’s garden. NOT!
I don’t know what I’m doing, seriously. HELP!!
There’s one plant I can grow, though. It’s the hydrangea. Right now it’s looking pretty unfazed by the 90+ degrees heat. My kind of plant!
Meanwhile, as far as food is concerned, I’ve been churning out salads.
Who wants to turn on the oven in this kind of heat!

I love Hydrangeas! There are many varieties too!
Thank you for hosting,
Yes, I have a few different varieties, but the one I have a lot of is Hydrangea macrophylla Nikko Blue. It’s very easy to grow. Have a wonderful weekend, Jennifer. I hope the situation will improve soon, over there in Australia.
Thanks again for hosting this lovely party every week! Thank you for featuring my instant pot soup too 🙂 Stay safe, healthy, and happy!!
You’re welcome. The soup sounds so good! And I need to use my instant pot more often ?
Thank you for the inspiring ideas and recipes – GREAT party as always. I brought BETTY WHITE’S CHICKEN WINGS, GARLIC CREAM CHICKEN and BAKED HAMBURGER STEAKS. Have a WONDERFUL weekend.
Thanks so much for partying with us!

The garden sounds like a perfect diversion! And you clearly have ‘green fingers’, because it looks beautiful.
Thank you so much for featuring my pizza xx
Thanks. Love the crispy pizza recipe!
I have been absent as well, my garden and a new puppy are keeping me busy. I look forward to seeing pictures of your own garden. And, welcome to summer vacation. Let me know when you need a cohost.
Wow, a new puppy, how exciting! And a lot of work ? Just like a garden. It’s never done, they say. A garden, that is ? I would love to have you cohosting next Friday (7/23) if you can. Let me know.
