And the livin' is easy
Fish are jumpin'
and the cotton is high
1935, George Gershwin- Porgy and Bess
lyrics by DuBose Heyward
When I was very young, Mother would play albums on the record player and the soundtrack from Porgy and Bess was always one of my favorites. If you aren't familiar with it, you might check it out. I especially love the Summertime song.
Yesterday when I went to Farmer's Market, I filled my market basket with pots of flowers. Today we went to one of my favorite places to purchase plants, Bloomington Valley Nursery. I call it "Happy Valley." Our good friend Jeanna works there.
Once again I filled my market basket and then some. I like my flower pots filled to overflowing. I came home and planted and planted. Seems everything I do I do to excess and today was no exception. I nearly ran out of flower pots. We have an old deck and we are using my old wicker set which is now 24 years old.
These photos were taken this afternoon in the late afternoon light. This is my deck- decked out.
