They really aren't.  Especially when you are retired.  I am so enjoying not having to go to work on these beautiful summer days.

I finally got a chance to cut the grass the other day and the yard is looking good again.  I want to get out there a little later and do some reading.

In the meantime, I thought I'd show you how some of the things are looking.  I didn't get a picture of the tomatoes and fairy garden again.  I have to do some weeding before the fairies turn me in for being a slum lord.  But here are some other shots for you to see.

My lilies.

Geraniums.  So pretty.

My neighbor has day lilies.  They are a lighter orange than mine are.

 My hydrangea.

I took my shepherd's crook and hung little cages with tea lights in them.  They are so pretty at night.

They are battery operated so there's no chance of a fire.

Looking good since the grass got cut.

Roses.  So pretty.

The solar butterfly and impatiens.  I thought they had died, but they are starting to come back.

I really love these little lights.

Some strange man came into the yard and sat down.  He said his name was... Joe was it?

Such a pretty sunset on Friday.  I love the gold in the clouds.

Hope you enjoyed the tour.  Have a good day and try to get outside and enjoy this summer while it's here.

    Love all the flowers, and those little tea lights are precious....
    Such a beautiful sunset, and a man with my namesake, who wouldn't love that
