It's breezy this morning so I took Sunshine out for a very flat-road spin! I ventured a bit further and came to a (gasp!) HILL. Sunshine doesn't have any gears because she is a beach bike, so I had to stand up to get up the hill. My heart beat a lot faster than it does when I do Zumba or walk on the treadmill! I survived and when I got back to the house I rode around in circles in the driveway like I did when I was a kid. FUN!
There are a few happy surprises in the front garden! Roses blooming like crazy, a wild looking lily, and some volunteer sunflowers and cosmos!
The volunteer sunflowers are so hearty. The shape of their leaves looks like someone cut it out with scissors.
Sunflower buds = stunning!
Morning glories planted themselves in a pot that was left in the dirt over the winter. I pulled them over to the stone wall and today THEY PRODUCED their bell-like blooms!
If you find a stick and some maple spinners, you can make a dragonfly!
Jeff's girlfriend is AMAZING, by the way. We fell in love with her! She's gracious, kind, funny, tough, and gorgeous. Yay! Jeff sweetly hung my curtain rod in the living room so this morning I pressed the cotton curtains I've had for decades and hung them up. It looks breezy and happy!
I'm off to the fabric store to buy crafty projects for the girls. I have to pack my backpack and a food bag, too. I have learned that I don't LOVE kid food anymore.
We have yellow butterflies all around. I am going to buy some oranges, cut them up and put them on the picnic table and see if the flutterby friends gather there. I read somewhere that they do!
July 1. Wow! Summer really is in its glory this month, isn't it?
Thank you for reading!
