Gardens, garden, garden

I actually have 2 gardens at our house now~one in the front yard and one in the back.   Out front I have hollyhocks, sunflowers, zinnias (from last summer) and cosmos coming up from last season's plants.   I have various shrubs, too, for the hummingbirds.   We have a bird bath in the front yard and one in the back, next to the hollyhocks.   I have sunflowers, hollyhocks, and sweet peas in the back and bird feeders too.  My gardens keep me sane, in these uncertain times.   I go out in the front and back every morning and water.   I have spots of bush beans and squash, too.

Here are just some random photos I've been taking:

Welcome 2020!

A new year, new hope, and the flu!   Yup.   Hubby and I already have the flu and we've now been coughing at each other for 10 days.   It will eventually go away, but until then, we are tired and worn out. Before we both got sick, I did manage a trip over the mountain to see our son and his family.   This was the day after a big snow dump in our local mountains...
