Do What We Love, Love What We Do

 Our neighborhood had a garage sale and Doc found some new toys.  He repairs
 lawn mowers and snowblowers.  He LOVES doing this!
 He loves finding little tricks on the internet; he cores the strawberries with a large opening straw.
 The greenbelt is luscious and often tranquil.  Sometimes I'm the only walker.
Doc bought their neglected mower for $5.00!  Both teens now have braces! Time flies!!
 
 My sewing class was ages 12 - 69 and all are great.
 
 Broncos man (recipient of the $200 socks!!) is sewing a grocery tote.
The wee one is most gutsy and creative; no surprise to me.
Breakfast after Sunday Mass is the BEST!
 
 I could live in these gardens!!
 The edible sunflowers are starting to bloom and to attract ladybugs.
 
 
 
 The backyard is a work in progress.  Blooms are visible in the new Polinators' Paradise.
AND, patches of new grass are growing before the bunnies and birds and squirrels feast on the seeds!

Little Winter, Big Mail Deliveries

 Rain finally arrived; it's 48 but feels like 43! We have rain, not snow!!
 My gardens are loving the moisture.
 I receive most fun mail every day! The littles draw pictures; the big kid uses cursive!!
I started my walk in a hooded sweatshirt but..... damp and 49 degrees convinced me to return home for a winter coat.  Our world is beautiful!
 
 
 
 
 
The best part about June is the plant growth.  All is beautiful.

Happiness: Plants and Yarn

 
 The blooms from the Catalpa look like snowballs!

 
 Knitting alone or with friends is the BEST!

Bunnies Reign

 Every morning, I chase them out of the front gardens.  Sometimes I don't see one and it startles me.
 They are everywhere, eating tulips and seeds and new green growths.  I don't like them!
This morning as I chased one, Leo hollered, "quit stomping on the rabbits!"

Wonderful Summer Climate

 It's presently 97 degrees and 12% humidity.  If you stand in the shade, it's very comfy.
 
 
 The bit of red is Yarrow just starting to bloom.
 
 
 The blue is salvia; I planted a red blooming perennial in the center of it! It's growing!!
 The Northern Catalpa is healthy and blooming.
 
This is the favorite climate of all the many places we've lived.  Colorado Rocks!!

Green Grass, Green Algae

 Yay! I had figured the squirrels, bunnies, and rabbits ate all the grass seed! Nope!!
 The greenbelt is gorgeous; the algae is taking over the stream.
