This week two of our nephews came to spend the week with us.
It is making 3 seem easy. The ages are 7,8,9,10 & 11. Wow!!
Jacob will always hold a special place in my heart. When he was 3 or 4 his Dad brought him to a party at Aunt Cindy’s. There were alot of people there all waiting to see him. When they arrived Jacob got a little overwhelmed with all these people calling to him. He looked over and saw me and yelled ‘Aunt Michelle” and came running into my arms.
He got a new bike that Christmas.
Anyway, part of this is why the house repairs currently look like this.
Plus this time of year is not exactly prolific for the garden – but there are some flowers still blooming.
In honor of Davey’s visit, the David Phlox is blooming
The Oriental lilies are blooming, leaving a wonderful scent in the hot humid air of summer
We still have some daylilies in bloom . . .
and there are still some roses trying to stay around to keep me happy.
In the front dog run (and the back one too) there are sunflowers blooming.
I will be able to see this one from my second floor after it blooms.
We have a mystery squash plant that appeared in the front dog run.
I saw baby peppers in the garden
I will leave you with a peaceful moment in the cool shade of the conservation area looking at the waterfall you hear out my back door. Have a lovely evening.
