What a difference a week makes......

You hear it all the time......but only a short week and WHAT a difference!

Remember back on Mother's Day?
We added pavers outside the back door..well...the 5+inches of rain tried to teach them to float or swim......so a little repair work was done and some of the sand was shifted so the grass is coming though now.....
 ....the lantanas are starting to bloom some too and that always helps....
My garden is now finished...and I have added a few more tomatoes
and the Sea Bee gave me a Jalapeno or two
(think he felt sorry for me because of my "sucess" of trying to start some from seed...not a pretty sight)
and finally a picture of the Lilies that came from my Mother's home.....after her passing and then the selling of the house things were so hecktic that I forgot to nab some of them from the garden.....I did remember to get a good start of the Peonias that she loved.....but the Lilies were the flowers I remembered most.  A couple of  years ago Jeffery wrote the owners of the house where she lived and asked if he could purchase the clothesline poles that she used and he remembered playing on......Lucky for him the new owners had just dug them up and she told him he was 'most welcome to them' ...so we went and while picking them up I got to walk through and tell her stories of the house I grew up in......when we saw the lilies were still thriving she offered us a 'start'......so now after living here for two springs now I have this.......

Nothing special.....just Day Lilies.......but when I see them I smile and remember.......

Don't upset them! I might need some once they are established!

I can remember a few stories about that house that would surely get a chuckle or two... ;)
