The Fourth of July is a colorful holiday. The red, white and blue of the flag and patriotic decor is everywhere. Fireworks fill the dark night sky with shades of pink, red, blue, yellow and green. This week, in the garden, another colorful explosion started to take place. Our lilies, which are a beautiful pale shade of pink. started opening one by one and now the flower bed is just full of beautiful flowers. The baby’s breath is spreading through the same bed. The perennials are making their appearance, one by one and color is coming, slow but sure, to the yard.

I have been so wrapped up in the things I have to get done that I have forgotten the pure pleasure I get from taking my camera outside and snapping some pictures, memorializing this brief, but beautiful, time of the summer. These pictures, like the flowers represented in them, have made me smile, capturing the color that the warm sun in July brings to the yard. I hope they make you smile as well. Happy Friday!

One of our projects was to build a fire ring in the yard up by the chairs. Besides keeping the bugs away, it is pretty relaxing. Last night was the inaugural fire –made me feel like we were camping.

Fire is so primitive and so great to photograph….I sat and played with the camera for quite a while as you can see.

 

And of course, the guy responsible for it all….

July is National Blog Posting Month according to WordPress. It is encouraging bloggers to blog every day for the month. I usually try to blog everyday but, well, kids, work, visitors – sometimes it’s just not possible. I am going to make an effort to blog about something everyday. I am also going to make an effort to walk everyday also. We’ll see how this goes.

Now, a word about the weather – rain. Need I say more?
