Our two week visit to family had finally come to an end. After almost 8 hours on the road (that and the ensuing tiredness and endless chores are my excuses for my not being able to visit you nor reply to your comments 🙂 ), we pulled into our driveway at last.
I was relieved to find that the beloved curves (of leaves and stems and flowers) have survived our absence. The weeds did too, for that matter. 😉
The almost incessant rains took care of the plants. The occasional hot humid days made sure that the thriving seedlings that we left had some growth spurt.
I was more than pleased to see that some of the roses have not all completely dropped their petals –
and that the lilies are in their peak.
The daisies keep our front porch cheerful –
while the Foxgloves stood sentries by our side porch.
These lovely blooms added cheer to our homecoming. It is nice to go away for some break and family time, but it is even better to come home. 🙂
Thank you for coming by. I hope you enjoyed that mini-trip in our yard. 🙂
