I can't believe it's AUGUST! Time sure flies when you're busy. We've taken lots of pictures of the garden last week, but haven't had time to upload anything.
We even had some rain on Friday and yesterday it's been mostly cloudy and today again. Unusual, but we're taking the opportunity to work outside most of the day.
