July days are in full swing.........big holiday over, leaving on a vacation end of this month. Today is DH's birthday - seems there were great firework displays in his honor last night, lol!
Happy Birthday dear Bob, and here's to many more - fireworks guaranteed.
- Reviewing past magazines before sharing with friends.
- Loving Fifi O'Neill's beautiful book.
- Checking blogs, of course!
- Sipping Trader Joe's pink raspberry lemonade with the addition of fresh raspberries.
Meanwhile, tucked into my front steps, a tiny purple viola is still surviving in the torrid heat! Somehow this sweet flower seeded from a plant in the nearby flower bed, amazing!
We're far from the blue ocean, at least two hours driving on the hot, hazy highway. Perhaps a sea of cool green ivy will be the closest we get to water for a while. Will be off to the West and my favorite blue lake later this month.
Plenty of ivy in my garden - impossible not to keep that plant down.
Red hot bricks and mortar. Each day a bloom fades and shrivels, then another opens. Definitely a lesson in tenacity for me.
Discover the small things tucked in the corners of every day.
I'm enjoying reading your guesses regarding my cruise to somewhere!
