Today I thought I'd show you some flowers growing in our yard.
We have a marigold! Aidan is happy since these are his.
Bee balm is blooming this year. We got this from my sister.....it's so pretty!
Of course I'm tickled pink about this one =)
Am just so amazed at the beauty!
The same sister gave us these to plant this year....wasn't sure if it would come up or not. It did and now I hope it blooms!
We have loads of the ferns you can see behind the canna lilies. They grow wild in the woods making it look like a thick green carpet.
Waiting for the grape tomatoes to ripen. There are some plum tomatoes ripening also. The big slicing tomato plants that Zoe started from seed are still rather small. We hope they hurry up and grow so she can pick some.
Now I'll finish my cup of pumpkin spice coffee while Noah takes a nap. Drinking it inside today because it's too hot to sit on my porch. It's been 90 degrees everyday this week.
I'll have to tell you a funny story from this hot week.....
On Monday when I picked up Aidan and Zoe from the drama camp they are attending, they suggested stopping for ice cream. We would pass DQ, and Wendy's wasn't too far up the road either. We decided on a frosty since it's only 50 cents for a small right now. As we pulled up in the drive through lane, we recognized the van in front of us. It was PopPop!! He decided a frosty was also a good idea on his way home from work! The kids got the biggest kick out of seeing PopPop at Wendy's.
I pick them up again today....it's really hot out there....maybe we will go for it again ;-)
Dinner is roast beef made in the crockpot tonight. I'll soon add potatoes and carrots. That's always a hit meal for the family.......and do I ever love a crockpot meal!
God bless your Thursday!
