We woke to fog and chilly temperatures this morning. The fog is slowly lifting, but it's still hazy and the light is perfect for taking pictures in the garden.
Yesterday, I scored when I found potted zinnias for buy one, get one free, at the grocery store. The assorted flowers in the pot on my front porch had seen better days, so I replaced them with this brightly colored arrangement.
I love zinnias, and butterflies love them, too!
Turning the page on my weekly calendar this morning, I see August is just around the corner. For those whose schedule follows the school calendar, summer is drawing to a close. I resist being pulled into that way of thinking, fortunately I have that luxury, and instead concentrate on another six weeks of gardening, summer menus, pool time and outdoor activities.
My summer bucket list has a couple of unchecked items -- a visit to an antique shop that has piqued my interest, is one of them. We still need to take a picnic supper at the local water park with the grandkids, and I have yet to finish my reading list for the library reading program. There are a couple of barbecues on the calendar and a day to check out some microbreweries in a neighboring town. Lots of summer left!
Dan and I are taking the bus downtown for a Rockies game this afternoon. Shhh, don't tell anyone, but it looks like the Rockies could be making a comeback.😉
I'll add one more photo from the garden. . .
And another, just to keep to keep it real. . .
Where the magic happens, haha! Happy new week!
