Sometimes flowers are best left to where they grow and bloom. These Daylilies are growing over at my brothers along the edge of the road and they have a perfect tree backdrop.
Our days have been cool and our nightime temperatures are fall like….really unusual for August. Somtimes it is too cool to have the windows open!
I finished two bunches of woodcarved Christmas ornaments that are headed to Oregon and New Jersey later this week. The count is 60 ready to paint, 12 painted, and a few more to carve.
Four of my baby brothers grandchildren that have been visiting. We met three of these children for the first time, the oldest we had met before when he made his first trip to Minnesota a few years ago. They sure do liven things up. They thought my request to line up on a pile of dirt was great fun! (They were all supposed to be saying cheeese!)
The oldest caught his first fish today, but the motion of the boat put him to sleep so he missed it. Up until the fish today, they have just caught weeds….but they were thrilled with that too!
