A pretty surprise greeted me this morning as I was busy tending to my garden. One "Double Delight" rose in full bloom under my hummingbird feeder.
We've had so much rain this year that in many ways it feels like we're still waiting for summer to begin. On the bright side I have never had a happier garden. The perennial flowers and zinnias planted from seed are tall and healthy and blooming to beat the band.
So far this summer we've had the boat out once and that was Memorial Day weekend. When it seemed like the weather might cooperate, we decided to have a day on the lake this past Sunday. We invited the kids over, prepared the food, charged up the batteries in the boat and . . . the engine wouldn't turn over.
So there was no boating, but there was lots of loving on the baby boy.
It's been a long time since we've had a baby to love.
Please forgive me for being a bit sporadic in my blog visiting and commenting of late. It's just that I'm spending a lot of my spare time getting to know the little guy.
Oh my, I had forgotten how soft they are.
I had him all to myself for a while on Sunday and found myself just gazing at those sweet little fingers and toes.
Smitten? Yes, guilty as charged.
I promise I'll be back down to earth by my next post.
