Hello, Sunshine!

One of the things I look forward to every summer up here in Wisconsin is the arrival of sunflowers.  I believe I'm correct when I say that farmers rotate them around just as they do most all crops; so, you can't always depend upon the same field each summer for a glorious show.  I did happen to find one, though, about ten miles south of our home and couldn't wait to share them with you!  The pictures, of course, do NOT do the scene justice!  Acres and acres and acres of these things!

This was just such a beautiful sight!  I have a few planted outside the chicken coop, which will be blooming soon (if I continue to keep them watered during this drought!).  Hopefully, I'll be able to share those as well.  I've missed blogging, but I am dealing with a painfully s...l...o...w computer here.  You have no idea how long this short post has taken!  That, plus, I have fallen prey to the Candy Crush addiction (I'm so ashamed).
Thanks for visiting!

Door County Garden Walk

For several years I have looked forward to this event in our area...for a multitude of reasons I wasn't able to go until this year.  
Each year, a local medical facility sponsors this House and Garden Walk as a fundraiser.  I didn't realize that there was 'heavy' emphasis on the House aspect, as I really wanted to see the gardens.  Though I was a tad disappointed at the whole affair, I did manage to get some photographs of lovely things.  Hope you enjoy!

Isn't this a beautiful driveway?

And isn't this a beautiful 'summer home?'  Most every room faces the bay...a beautiful sunset every evening!

 Stunning walk down to the bay!

Gigantic it!

And isn't this a cute little garden shed?

 Dahlias at the last stop on the tour.  I don't grow them; these were HUGE and beautiful!

Hope you enjoyed the Garden Walk!
