Six on Saturday…

Sunflowers: I can’t believe how much they have grown!
Sweetpeas, with flowers already!

tomatoes: gonna be huge!

a new arrival!

Our only rose!

Plenty of berries for the birds!

I can’t believe how fast everything is growing, seems they like the heat.

I hope they continue to like it when the temperature soars this weekend!

I am posting an extra image today as I am fascinated by the developing buds on those sunflowers. I haven’t grown these before; they are a dwarf variety with multiple flowers…

Looks a bit alien, doesn’t it?

You can check in with Mr Propagator: at https://thepropagatorblog.wordpress.com to see how an expert does #Six on Saturday.

I should get a lot of writing done this weekend, as I’m staying indoors, out of the heat.

Stay cool too, everyone!

The Enthusiasm Wagon…

The tomatoes are growing!

Here we are again, it’s Monday, the sun is shining, every reason to feel optimistic…

But I don’t. Somehow, I fell off the enthusiasm wagon over the weekend. Not sure why, for there didn’t seem to be a reason. Maybe I just needed to chill out for a bit.

Trouble is, today, I can’t seem to find that bloody wagon!

I have been feeling a little uneasy lately, but nothing I could put my finger on. Just enough to make my thoughts wander. I need to be more organised, have more work scheduled, already written, that sort of thing. This simply must happen if we want to move on, or up in the writing world.

Marketing has been a bit of a non-entity this year, and for the life of me, I cannot remember when it stopped being at the top of our must-do list! These days there are so many things going on, it has become difficult to string several thoughts together in order to trigger the creative process.

Apart from the garden, which does see me occasionally. More duty than inspirational though, despite managing to grow our first tomatoes, as they must be watered. But for those few minutes, as I wander around spraying water, something magical happens and I come back inside in a much better mood.

Now the weather is getting warmer, I think I will be working/writing outside. I’m not sure if this is where the enthusiasm wagon is parked, but it’s definitely not in my office!
