I'll start with the moss roses. Remember last year when the storm blew down part of our willow tree? Well, thanks to my daughter planting some grass in the broken part of the tree, I got the bright idea of planting flowers in there instead. She wasn't too happy with me for ripping out her carefully nurtured grass (I didn't know she did it!), but it turned out real pretty. Nice bright surprise for cars driving by.

Next up I'd like to share the new additions to my front porch landscaping. I got the frog first, and then fell in love with the toad.
|"FROG parking, all others will be TOAD"|
I love this!
|Yes, I am my daughter's mother--I still LOVE toads!|
Ceramic ones and live ones.
Lastly, here are of some of the other pretty colors in my different pots.
|Pretty in pink.|
|Someone else likes my flowers...see that little moth?|
|I took this one for the purple, but the rest are just as beautiful.|

I visit them as I'm watering, then unfortunately, it's so darn hot I head right back inside and don't get to enjoy them so much. I look forward to the days of cooler evenings when I can go outside on my porch and read in the evenings. (or in the morning)
Next up for me will be a ton of canning in the next two months or so to last us for the next year. Beans, dill pickles, salsa, sloppy joe sauce, diced tomatoes, and spaghetti sauce. Yum, yum, yum!
What are you up to this summer?
