The End of Summer

Hello everyone! It’s been a while, but I think I’ve made up for my absence by sharing several photo’s of one of my favorite flowers, zinnia’s.

My neighbor, at the lake house, sowed his raised garden full of all colors of zinnia’s. It was so much fun watching the hummingbirds, butterflies and bee’s buzzing around this beautiful flower garden.

I didn’t begin to capture the beauty of this garden, but I hope you get some idea and enjoy.

Oh yes… I brought several cuttings home with me to use in my garden in town.

Tribute on my best buddy

My best friend and little blogging buddy lost his long fight with cancer last month. He has been in so many photo’s on this blog, he loved the camera and we were always together. We truly miss him, but it’s also comforting to know that he is no longer in pain.

We’re happy to have Maggie. She’s not Albert, but she is going to be a great dog. She’s actually going to her first obedience class tonight. Wish us luck!

Thanks friends for stopping by today. I hope you have enjoyed your summer. Take care and enjoy this cooler fall weather!

The best of Summer

Hello everyone! Can you believe it’s July already? It seems like time is flying by. I’m truly enjoying the lovely weather we’ve been having.

One of our favorites things to do is to have dinner on the patio. I planted basil in our concrete planter boxes this year, instead of flowers, my herbs love it.

I used some of our homegrown garlic for the pesto…..I think the garlic blooms are so interesting. The pollinators do as well.


The hydrangeas are especially beautiful this summer. I think it’s due to all the rain we’ve been having.
Do you like fresh cut flowers?

Thanks everyone! I hope you had a wonderful 4th of July! We are having our fireworks tonight, due to the storms and rain last night.
I’m glad the dogs don’t mind loud noises.

(Hey guys if this post looks a little different, I’m trying to get Blogo to post and update…so basically this post has been an experiment, thanks again for hanging in there.)

Take care and let me know what you’ve been up to.
