Its a Jungle out there

Its a jungle out there...or in my garden. Wildness is taking over + the garden
Jungle for illustration Friday challenge + Sunday Sketches + Artists in Blogland + Creative Everyday + Inspiration Ave. Several challenges that I have missed for several weeks. I need the discipline of creating every week! Life gets busy but I miss pushing myself to complete and share something each week. Thank you to all of these sites and the creative souls whose positive energy keeps them flowing!

Garden/House excuses.....

Gardening like mad, cutting flowers for the local market + road side stand + working full time.....Not so much time for painting. We have also started painting our living room (white over dark wood) I am speckled! Very stinky primer.

 Our days are filled with watering & weeding but also with starting to eat from the garden not all flowers.

 The sweet peas have hit 7 feet tall fronted by lilies starting to open.
 Growing some yard long beans as well.
 First of the tomatoes
Cosmos and sunflowers just getting going. In the birdhouse lots of activity.
I'm very grateful for a deer fence this year what a difference!
So I am wishing for painting time....but for now it is mostly of the house painting variety! I am so thankful to have a house to paint though it be old and always in need of something fixing :)
