A Happy Independence Day!

It was a nice July 4th here in Northern California. Yes, it was hot but we enjoyed a quiet, peaceful day.
My July 4th Menu consisted of:
Lunch: Hot dogs and potato salad
Dinner: Filet Mignon and baked potatoes cooked on the grill
Dessert: Watermelon (fresh from the garden)
Here are some pictures of our day. I've also included a couple of my older kids day back in Connecticut.

Petunias and Hot Summer Weather

It's been two years since I have updated my blog. I had gotten busy with my Etsy shop which took a lot of my time. Just lately, I started missing writing on my blog. So, here I am with my first post in two years! 
 I was looking back at my early summer pictures and was surprised at how much my petunias have grown. the above picture was taken in early June. 

Here it is late August and they have grown so much. They've needed a lot of water and tender loving care during our very hot summer weather (over 100 degrees most days). 

A few times, I thought they might not make it. Glad they did, as I love looking out my window at their beauty.

Hello September!

Hard to believe that we are leaving summer behind already. But, welcome September! Inching ever closer to my favorite season of the year.

September days are here With summer's best of weather And, autumn's best of cheer
