I'm on the road today, taking a quick little vacation with my kids and some friends. Before I head off, though, I thought I'd share some pictures of things that caught my eye this week.
Look at these sunflowers! Aren't they gorgeous? They were on sale at my local Albertson's for the low, low price of $5.99. I bought some for myself, bought some for my neighbor, and even bought a bouquet for my aunt. They're just amazingly vibrant and are such a wonderful way to help me get in the mood for summer to wind down.
My aunt has a summer cabin on Priest Lake in Idaho. Every year she invites us up to visit her while she's got her cabin open (she lives in Minnesota). Wednesday was a beautiful day. Fluffy clouds and blue skies...looks like a postcard, but we were sitting right there.
Buttercup spent her entire time in the water. (Do you see how clear the water is? It was like looking through glass.)
Valiant even tied a bag around his cast and got into the water.
I snapped these gorgeous little wildflowers on the way up the hill as we headed back to our car. Aren't they pretty?
Oh, and all my "clearance" plants have been planted and are enjoying life at the Nagle homestead.
Head over to Tootsie's to see what everyone else is sharing for Fertilizer Friday this week...some gardens are winding down and some are just hitting their stride.
