Summer Sunday Scenery!

Following the upset of yesterday, we decided this is as
far as we'll venture until I return to work on Tuesday!
 Hear that?
That's the sound of no one complaining!
I think I can handle 48-hours of do-nothingness...
Although I do suspect the hours will fly!
In the meantime, I plan to soak up the sunshine...
And, enjoy the fact that everything around us that was recently underwater...
Is drying out!
In a few weeks from now, these sweet plants we picked up at the
Farmer's Market will be spilling over the sides of these planters!
My pool-boy doesn't know how to relax as immediately as I do...
I see the water and I'm chill. He gets into the water and finds a spot he missed!
I rather enjoy that part of him!
I also enjoy the part that didn't mind picking up...
My new market umbrella at Costco last week...
After I realized that it wouldn't fit into the Mini!
And, I especially love the part of him that's worked
so hard to bring back the gardens after the flood!
It's hard to believe that less than two weeks ago...
All of this was under sticky, muddy water!
I hope to never see it like that again!
Nature has once again proved to be as resilient as it can be destructive!
Lucky me!
Very lucky indeed!
I'm thrilled that the pond is back!
And, that the majority of the hostas have sprung back to life!
I see the path through the shade garden...
Has been refreshed with a new covering of bark mulch!
The size and shape of the creek has changed a lot. It's wider and
much, much deeper in many spots. I keep throwing fish food into
the pools hoping to find that some of our koi might have survived...
But so far... No such luck!


  1. Your garden so gorgeous. I can't believe it was so recently flooded. It is so sad about the chickens and fish. I just recently found one of my chickens dead in the coop. I also have two newly hatched chicks.

  2. Beautiful once again! Sometimes I think we need to be more like nature and learn how to bounce back quickly.

  3. So beautiful!! Your husband does an amazing job. And what an adorable weather vane. Enjoy the holiday! AL in CA

  4. Lovely, Janet! No swimming for me so far this year, but I almost feel like I have after browsing your post!

  5. Lucky indeed! I can NOT believe your yard was so recently flooded. It really does look awesome. So wonderful!!! And it sounds like you've got quite a catch there in the Mister ... hopefully he's settled in and relaxed a bit, too. :)
