Little Bit of Rain

A couple of weeks ago we had a few days of rain, thunder, and lightening. I happen to be a very big fan of summer storms. During a lull in the storm me, my favorite crocs and my camera took a stroll through the garden.


Yes, these are my favorite shoes I would wear them year round every where I went if I could. However, last time I tried to wear them to church my mother's voice was so loud in my head that I knew I wouldn't make it out of the house.


This is a pic of our garden. Again we have let a few random sunflowers sprout up. We love how they make our garden feel and look. Not to mention they attract birds who eat the bugs out of the garden.



Here is a couple pics of the roses. It has gotten to hot for them lately but on this day they were enjoying the rain. We had beautiful flowers all June because of the cooler temps.


Here are my Zinnias this is the first year I have planted Zinnias and they are quickly becoming a favorite of both Brent and I. Currently they are about two feet high and loaded with blooms. We will defiantly be planting more of them in the future.

With the summer finally heating up the garden is going nuts. The beans are taking off and each night we are enjoying produce out of the garden. The tomato plants are all loaded and before you know it we are going to be living off of BLT's.

I have been seriously thinking about hiring you to start a garden for me! I was out this morning in our garden corner of our new yard weeding all morning. All that seems to grow there right now is weeds and a ton of rocks! Then, I got on your blog and saw your garden!!! WOW! I want one like that!! I LOVE it! You are so talented! Where do I begin? I guess my first step is to get rid of the rocks and weeds? Then what?!?!? HELP!!! :0) Maybe I'll just have a computer garden and look at yours on your blog every day. That might be easier for me to take care of!! I enjoy the pictures! Thanks!
