Beautiful Giants

Hollyhocks surprised me by growing out of my compost pile this summer!

They have given me such pleasure to look upon.

P.S. It's hubby's b-day today so we're going out tonight to celebrate ...yeah! :)

to love and be loved. "

Allan at Play

On the FARM:-In the play area,
- Bumps his head... It's all part of LIFE,
- Poor Baby... Really, I DID comfort him after I took the picture! :)

scenes of SUMMER

-Yellow Canola Fields on the Prairies,

-Camping for a week... just me and my 3 boys,
-Towels on the line from fun at the pool,-Citronella candles in a row on our outdoor table for dinners cooked on the barbeque. -Allan's crocs on the lawn because he'd rather go barefoot.

Loving the lazy hazy days of it all.

Fresh after the Summer Rain

In my garden today:

"Then followed that beautiful season... Summer... Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape lay as if
new creation in all the freshness of childhood.
~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Does anyone know what this yellow one is called? It goes to seed just like a dandelion but sure doesn't look like one and grows way taller. I've been treating it like a weed but it sure is pretty.

Enjoying summer,
