There Is Beauty All Around...

I had Jillian take pictures of some interesting things going on in our yard this season.

I love this white Veronica plant...but who is that visitor?? My in-laws bought me this plant when we first moved into our house 7 years ago. They even helped me plant it as well as several others. It's been white for the full 7 years until now. All I can think of is that seeds must have blown and I DO have a purple Veronica. BUT, the purple is really far away from the white. Waaaay across the yard. And why only 1 stem that is purple? I don't know, but I'll enjoy the show while it lasts.

I love pansies and I usually see them growing in the cracks of my sidewalk each year. But this year, they really went to town! I have them all over. I don't have the heart to get rid of them just because they aren't in the actual garden. They are beauteous no matter where they put down their roots!

Ok, not a garden photo, but a cute one anyway. Ava climbed up in the computer chair and took a little snooze. She doesn't look too comfortable does she?!

Jillian also took this one while on a boat on Lake Michigan over the 4th of July weekend. I'm not a fan of summer, but I am a total fan of a view like this!
