August morning

The perennial gardens are now past their peak, but we are still treated with late Summer flowers.

Do you see the honey bee?


Oh, you beautiful eggplant….


Wanting to try some new vegetables for the garden, I planted eggplant.

Here is the review



Flavor–not so much!

Anyone have a recipe for me to try?

Bountiful Harvest

With fingers crossed in March

we planted tiny Heirloom tomato seeds.

Snow was piled all around the little greenhouse.

Heavy water buckets were hauled to feed the little seedlings.

A constant eye was on the heaters.

We are now enjoying this beautiful, tasty  assortment

of Heirloom tomatoes.

A beautiful rainbow of flavor

Summer of swimming

We just finished 6 weeks of Summer Swim Camp

We both are missing it…

The routine of early morning drive to the campus of Mankato State University

Listening to Disney Radio and trying to win prizes

Lucy smiling everyday after an hour long workout!

Can’t wait till Fall session starts!

(Well, let’s enjoy the rest of the Summer)
