It's been kind of a crazy little week or two around here
I've been up to some good things outside that are keeping me from my computer inside

I hope you are too!

I am crazy in love with the smell of orange mint

the tarragon is getting used...YUM!!!
so delicious on grilled fish

how do weeds grow so quickly and need to be hoed every single day?

cabbage is doing well
the lettuce is bug free and I'm not sure why
the squash is covered with blooms

the thyme is fragrant too!

grow wisteria grow!!!

cozy little corner

I bought this statue because I thought it looked like Betty
but by the looks of the sonogram...I think I picked one that looks just like
our just about to be little Perrilyn

I wish the other side looked like this..maybe by summer's end

pots from Santa this color this year!

The kiddos are usually around a lot and we love that
but these past few weeks?
one is about to give birth and sticks close to home
one is frolicking in LA with her boyfriend
one is celebrating her first anniversary and headed to Mexico
we are obviously frolickers!

and we find ourselves waiting waiting waiting

on cute sprinkler guy to give us a turn

This week will be full of summer fun and celebration
to me...July 4 is the Wednesday of summer

and makes me pretty nostalgic

gosh I hope you're having a great summer!!!

I love that gate! The gardens are coming along nicely. Here, it's constant rain so I won't be needing any lawn sprinkler guy!

Hi Gina, lovely plants everywhere! Your garden is my perfect kind of garden!

I hope you enjoy your great day, your July 4.
