Ant Condo



For some reason the ants in my garden have taken up residence inside of this zucchini flower. -Just this one! They aren't in any of the others. Why? Maybe they have controlled rent in this place. Maybe their Grasshopper Landlord gave them a good deal.

I Heart Faces Entry Week 24 - Let's Hear It For The Boys


This week's I Heart Faces Theme is Let's Hear It For The Boys in honor of Father's Day.




I just love this photos of my son hugging his dog, Mudge. This was on a trip home from visiting my dad for his 60th birthday. I think he has the sweetest look on his face.

Blue Bug



I found this guy while I was weeding my garden today. I've never seen a bug like this before!

Sweet Little Ladybug



My daughter noticed this little lady was resting up after a long day of eating aphids off of my roses. I had to grab my camera and snap her picture!

Nasturtium in the Rain



I noticed that my very first Nasturtium is about to bloom! The flower didn't come out very clear but I love the drops of water.

The Accidental Carrot and a Few Other Garden Photos



While I was planting my garden I accidentally spilled my carrot seeds. This one is growing under my sunflower.



I bought the wrong kind of peas. I thought that I got bush peas. Now, I need to build something for them to climb.



My sunflowers are going crazy!



So are my roses!



Don't these flowers remind you of a Spanish Dancer's Skirt?


My husband transplanted this Lily. We didn't think it would survive.



My husband said he liked the shape of this one.



And look, I have a strawberry! Now I just hope I can just keep those pesky slugs away!

I Have Bitten Off More Than I Can Chew!



It started out innocently enough. I just wanted to put up a new wallpaper border in my kitchen.
See, isn't this just the cutest!




It ends up that there are several layers of wallpaper and paint up there.



I don't doubt that I am breathing in lead paint dust!



Oh, and black mold spores since I also found some water damage that we couldn't see UNTIL NOW.

I am so glad I thought of this new border idea!

This photo was taken at Red Lobster. My daughter insisted that she wanted to go there for her birthday and try lobster. I just love the facial expressions in this photo!
