Summer, Remember It?

Since I was pretty much MIA during the summer and since it now is actually fall, I thought we'd go back and have a look at summer. It did actually happen. Early. Did you notice that, too?

I know you missed all the gazillions of daylily pictures and not wanting to disappoint, we'll have a nice look at June 21, 2010...the first official day of summer.

First, a rare look at my front yard. A few notable things happened.....as you'll see...


Look there...my new gate! What a help it is...many thanks to my good friend E who suggested it...and DH who also thought it should happen and financed it (of course)...


...and here...no, that is not a burial mound, but the remains of the huge tree that while giving great shade....well, shaded everything (and had lots of roots)...daylilies do like their sunlight and now they can have some...


...walk right in....


...a driveway bed....but on to the pictures!

FLIGHT OF ORCHIDS has such color this year....


Doesn't it just look like it's saying, "Ta Dah!"


SOUTHERN WIND looking particularly lovely...


SONG WRITER....


DON LUIS....


A many blooming GAIL BRAUNSTEIN....


COGNIZANT DISSONANT


Soft and sweet, AMERICAN DOLL...


At attention, SERGEANT MAJOR...


A biggie, TUSCAWILLA SNOWDRIFT...


MUCH ADO ABOUT MAGIC...


LICORICE CANDY...


ROSE VICTORIOUS...


Happy is me....PINK EMBROIDERY actually doubling...


PEPPERMINT PINWHEEL...


June 21st was quite a nice day....there's still more...but the dogs want their dinner....hehe.

Kobe is officially a Blessed Boy as he and I attended A Service for the Blessing of Animals. It was very nice and yes, all the other pets were also mentioned....

Sam Cat is recovering nicely after having been bitten by something. No stitches necessary, just needs to rest and recover. Whatever got him was probably (I'm thinking) because he had an injured leg and was not quite as quick as usual. His veterinarian said she could tell by the wound that he was engaged and battling...clearly not running away. Of course not! That's our Sammy...who is now going to have an enforced inside tenure for a bit.

You're right. Summer began early. I've not caught up, either. Thank you for your lovely post. Best wishes! :-)

I am glad because your flowers are just beautiful cause It's your well cared for it. Perhaps you can also add garden ornaments in your little garden. But in total flowers are lovely.
