Hello! Yesterday our son Travis and Ernie, his friend from work, took Dayle and the boys fishing on Ernie's boat. They went to a lake in Washington and look what Dayle reeled in! A nice Steelhead. We're having it for dinner tonight. Doesn't he look proud? :-)
I am thrilled with our Stargazer Lily plants. Goodness, they get huge! I never imagined that we could grow such exotic and lovely flowers in pots on our farm.
Dayle brought in the first one to bloom for me to enjoy. The perfume from these flowers is quite literally amazing.
My beloved 4th of July rose is on it's second big bloom, it really produces well all season.
My succulent basket keeps doing so well.. I wonder if I'll be able to carry it over to next year?
The pond and waterfall and garden around it are lush with midsummer growth. Such a nice place to enjoy from the chairs on the deck.
The basket of Moss Roses is filling out.. I just love them.
A close up of a Moss Rose.. aren't they sweet? They are only about the diameter of a silver dollar.
Here is one of Dayle's successes of his wintering over endeavors. This is the 3rd or 4th year he's kept this Bolivian Begonia coming back.
The flower basket that Kristi and Travis got me for Mother's Day is doing fantastic, and the Jasmine perfumes the air.
I am heading to the pool this afternoon for my lap swimming. Tomorrow I volunteer at Multnomah Falls. The weather is predicted to get very hot the next few days. I hope you're having a good summer where you are!! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
