Today flew by: French class this morning. I was going to quit for the summer, but when we figured out how few weeks we would actually all be in town, decided to keep going. Nadine is going to France to visit her family for 3 months in September - lucky, lucky!!
After class, I started digging out grass: in front of the fairy and around the rust urn by the dock. The urn space is going to need lots more work, but I dug up and divided a bunch of variegated hosta and planted them in front of the fairy. I think it looks good - and if not, I'll just put something else there next year. I have caladium to plant between the hosta since they won't be very full this year.

Now Mark is throwing dinner on the grill - and we'll have to hope it cooks fast because we have thunder and very black skies out there! Even though we've had pretty good rains, we can always use more. And then maybe it will be nice tomorrow and I can get more done outside.

So I plan to spend the evening with a good book. Oh, oh - it just started raining, and I'm pretty sure the burgers aren't done yet. Guess that's why they put lids on grills! And why husbands are water-proof!
And this is my favorite photo today - tomato blossoms!!!! Yippee!
