The garden is kicking into high gear. I've been harvesting lots of cucumbers, zucchinis and green beans. Herbs are doing well also...mint, basil and dill. It's almost time to harvest the lemon balm, I am so excited about that!
The flowers are blooming. All 5 colors of lily's have bloomed. Here are 2 of my favorites.
I got a lily tattoo on my arm to celebrate my love of these flowers...and also to cover up an old old old mistake. Maybe I'll post that one next month when it's all healed.
It was our first year growing dwarf Teddy Bear sunflowers and they turned out super-cute! They are only about 2 feet tall but so super puffy!
Hubby entered the AWRCS quad race again. I shot lots of pictures of him, our neighbors son and everyone who sped in front of my lens! Snowflake accompanied us on the second day of races. He loves showing off his leash walking talents....or maybe he just likes how everyone thinks he's so cute and feeds him treats...like watermelon. Yumm!
I found little red riding hood in the woods....At least I found her before the wolf did, right? lol My daughter dug into the Halloween costumes I had from when I was in my twenties and convinced me to shoot some pictures of her. I think they turned out cute. She wants to shoot in my flamenco dancer costume next. *sigh* I've created a monster for sure.
The goldfish and Shubunkins are getting bigger, and they don't hide from us nearly as much as they used to. I'm hoping they'll be big enough to withstand the winter when the pond starts to freeze.
We've hatched a lot of babies, pulled a lot of weeds and tested 2 different recipes that were utterly awful. (I won't be posting those!!!) I bought a ton of craft supplies...on sale...and am looking forward to getting my craft room back when college starts up again in a few weeks and oldest son goes back. I'm terrible, aren't I?
We've had about a week of stunning sunsets that looked like this:
Weird, right? It was literally 5 or 6 nights in a row that we had that odd pink sky. The weather was normal though...a little warm, but normal.
It was a great month, but now it means the Summer is that much closer to over. :-( I'm so not looking forward to winter.
