signs of summer

Kathleen's Clematis

I’ve spent much of April, May and June bouncing back and forth between California, Illinois and Michigan …

Kathleen's Lilacs

and while it was wonderful visiting family (and these fragrant lilacs!) …

Kathleen's Garden

it feels good to be home, enjoying the start of summer.

p.s. isn’t my sister Kathleen’s midwestern garden lovely? Her lilacs were intoxicating!

p.s.s. You know you’re getting old when your nieces and nephews are getting married (Congratulations Chris & Natasha! Congratulations Kelly & David!) and having babies (Congratulations Matt & Cortney! Congratulations Kristin & Tyler!)! We’re so happy for you!
