This was the note card - a photo of theirs - what a gorgeous butterfly. And inside were the cutest seed packets I've ever seen! Thank you so much, Chris & Laurie! I love them - both the seeds and the beautiful way you packaged them up. Very fun!
Today was an outdoor day for me. Both Tristi and Beth had recently inquired how much time I put in each day to keep my gardens up. I blithely said, oh just deadheading and pulling the occasional weed during these hot summer months. Yeah, well, that is definitely catching up with me now! The gardens look like quack grass city. And I have some weird ground cover weed threatening to take over every other inch of dirt. So this morning I spent about two hours cleaning up the two lakeshore gardens. They look much better. I'll try to get some fresh mulch on them tomorrow or Thursday, and then move on to another space. My summer vacation is over!
On a happier note, we just returned from kayaking. It was beautiful out there. I am definitely hooked!
I went out Sunday night at midnight to catch the Perseids. I saw 5 gorgeous shooting stars in 1 1/2 hours. At 1:30, I decided I was too tired and came in and went to bed. Five is better than none, but kind of disappointing just the same.
