A summer visit

We were blessed to have a visit from my nephew and his family from Colorado this summer. His son is such a cutie! He's playing with toys that were around circa early 1970s

....as is his older sister - enjoying a fudgsickle ;)

Mom, Dad and a Great Aunt and Uncle enjoy the backyard gathering.

...and a blue-bonneted Montana cousin to the Colorado cuties with another Great Aunt...

Spring Gardening

Here are some photos of my spring container gardening -- lettuce, spinach and cilantro.

Our Montana spring was cold and wet. I relied on starting seeds indoors..when the indoor temps were barely warm enough to germinate. The other first seedlings in the peat pots are broccoli, daisies, and basil. I found out later, as I didn't mark them well as they germinated ;0

I caught the lilacs that grow near my back door....the heighth of my blue spruce tree on the east side of the house...and early leaves on the maple tree to the south in the front yard -- The Honda FIT at the curb was my Cash for Clunkers score from July 2009 -- LOVE it!
