I just caught up! Love so many of your shots...the boat house, the light in the kitchen and that brunch looks decadent! Yes indeed, it is pitch black at 6am!

Tansy golden, tansy herb,
Good for city or suburb,
Keeps the flies and ants at bay—
Pesky critters, go away!

It's so pretty, like a bunch of buttons.
At first I though "Oh, good, repels ants!" then I thought "Oh, no, if the ants find the garden repulsive, they'll come into the house!"
