My Mom's pretty pink peonies...
...next door, here at the lake.
She loved these...and so do I.
Mom was very talented at flower arranging
and used to enjoy fixing up bouquets
from her garden to set about the house.
Dad says there wasn't a flower that she didn't love.
Here it is July and there are still some buds yet to bloom.
We have been busy here at the lake with lots of company...
...both friends and family.
This weekend we will be celebrating Independence Day
with a flea market, picnic, parade and fireworks.
There will be 13 of us this year and it is always a lot of fun.
Wishing you happy summer days!
