The Latest Report on My Experimental Container Garden

I'm pleased to report that my tomatoes are beginning to turn red.  The color showed up yesterday. 

I  must apologize to these unusual looking tomatoes.  A week or so ago, I accused them of making faces at me.  They're definitely my favorites today.  (Uh oh.  Favoritism and conditional love are bad things). 

My cucumbers are almost ready to eat.  They are heavier than I expected them to become.  It's weird but after nurturing these veggies, I'm not real eager to eat them.  After all, they're my masterpieces. 
I'll harvest these two the same day.  They've become so close, I don't have the heart to take one and leave the other.

I have two sweet peppers.  They are lagging behind the tomatoes and cucumbers in development but are coming along just fine. 

That's the latest news about my experimental garden.

Peek-A-Boo Sweet Peppers

I was grieving the loss of my sweet, green peppers.  I'd seen signs of them and then they were gone.

I must be blind in one eye and unable to see from the other because look here.  I must have been looking over the top of them as I've been visiting my garden because they didn't get this big overnight.

I'll add my peek-a-boo peppers to my list of unpredictable vegetables in my mini-garden.

Geneva Lake Shore Path Clockwise From Williams Bay

We began our walk here in Williams Bay on a hot and windy summer Friday afternoon, July 19th to be exact.

We walked as far as you can see, to the mouth of the bay.

Sailboats, motorboats, jet skis and all manner of water sports were at play. 

As always on Geneva Lake, the homes are intriguing, some more so than others.  This one is very unique.

It is unique from all angles.

Did I mention the temperature?

Ahhh...to own such a place.

We walked high above the lake on this portion of the path.

I think this is a perfect statue for this deck.

Lon and I would be tickled pink to have a little summer home like this, right on the water.  We like to dream.

Last Friday, we walked the path on that side of the bay.

My only question:  Is it move-in ready?

This would be a more realistic dream-come-true summer home.

As long as we're dreaming, I'll take one of these too!

In the Backyard With My Camera

Our Black-eyed Susans opened up yesterday.

That's a wildflower in the forefront with the bright green leaf.  The impatiens are about to cover them.

Lon rearranged some old and some new firewood in the corner of our backyard.  Besides providing for our campfires, it serves as a privacy fence.

Mother Nature takes several summer vacations from watering my flowers so I do it.  It keeps me busy.
