After a cloudy start, yesterday turned into a gorgeous day. I did some work outside and inside, but most of the time I simply delighted in being home.
I can’t stop taking pictures of the garden. I have a strong need to chronicle the seasons, the comings and goings, the still brilliant color of some of the blooms. It’s something I never tire of doing. Each time I wander around the gardens and the property, I discover something new. Perhaps I just happen to see a plant from a different angle. Or I discover a little critter like this one:
He’s on a morning glory leaf. Perhaps he’s eating the morning glory leaf. That’s fine with me. We all need to eat.
This particular zinnia is a giant. It must be over 4 feet tall. Zinnias make me smile.
In the afternoon, Don and I took a ride in the car. We were on the lookout for some jeans. That part of the trip ended up being fruitless, but we stopped at Five Guys for some of their fries (to my mind, the best french fries ever.) They give you such an enormous serving, it’s a meal in itself. But did we stop there? Unfortunately, no. We happened to spot a Dairy Queen and we each got a milkshake. We decided that it was a “It’s bad for you lunch day” or perhaps a more fitting title, “Bad for your arteries lunch day.” Since we hardly ever do that kind of thing, it was sort of fun. And so yummy!
We ate much more healthily at dinner time.
Does Scout like to be outside? Does she smile?
The answer to both questions is yes. Her daddy has been brushing her and she’s looking particularly fetching.
I love her so.
Happy Wednesday from the Cottage.
