I love visiting my daughter Andrea and son-in-law Pat. The weather was perfect, mild and sunny (a nice break from Texas heat for me), and I spoiled their dogs -- Loki
and Sunny --
with many walks around their townhome neighborhood. A pretty pond is the neighborhood's central point
inhabited by this fellow,
who teased Loki and Sunny by splashing away before they could get close.
This year, neighbors are tending a vegetable garden in the common park.
Looks like the pumpkins will be ready for Halloween -- always a major event in this area.
And back home, in Andrea's little flower garden
the bees were really busy in this plant.
Anyone know what it is? If so, drop me a comment and let me know. I'd love to have some, but it probably wouldn't grow well in the weather furnace this Texan calls home!
Enjoy the rest of your summer, everyone!
