Happy 4th!

 Last night we went down the street to a neighbors for dinner.
I took the mini-terriers and a go-green tote bag to Vicky as a 
hostess gift.  Moving on to dinner ... for the entree we had hand-made crab cakes
by Roy.  He shared his one secret ingredient for crab cakes which was the 
addition of sour cream.  Yum-yum!
 While we can see Vicky & Roy's yard from a distance
I wanted to see it up close so I asked for a tour.
 Vicky started the sunflowers from seed.
 Nasturtiums.  I love this plant will add this to next
year's planting list.
 Purple Basil ... interesting.
 The view across the pond from Vicky & Roy's back yard.
 You can see our property and the large back bed with our
tiny little plants that hopefully will grow quickly.
 This is the plant I really wanted to photograph.
 Bishop's Lace
 I wanted to see this plant because I'm familiar with Queen Ann's 
Lace but not this specific variety of plant.
 Butterfly Bush
This ends the tour of Vicky's garden.  We had a totally enjoyable
and delicious dinner.   Afterwards we went to the front porch rocking
chairs to have a slice of fruit pie with a side of ice cream.  How American
is that!  Have a safe & happy 4th.


  1. So many pretty flowers. Sounds like a very nice evening. Happy 4th

  2. Love the photos from the garden. Nice view over to your home!
