A beautiful long-stemmed Mr. Lincoln rose.
My one and only Stargazer lily, planted as a bulb two years ago, and all but forgotten till this happened.
And chocolate mint...it is delectable. Just crush and drop into ice water for the most refreshing summer drink.
This is my favorite summer morning sitting spot. I can watch the birds fly from the willow tree to the porch.
We have hundreds of birds here everyday, and the occasional squirrel who seem to have outsmarted my plastic dome baffles. Squirrels are little geniuses.
This deck is perfect in the evening for dinner and watching sunset.
My climbing roses are making their way up again, as they did last summer. I wonder how high they will climb this year? In the shady trees beyond, there lives a family of deer with two fawns.
My summer self is a bit like this gal here.
