The cats are enjoying drowsing in the fresh air of an open window.
I'm not sure what this yellow flower is behind the Russian Sage, but I think it is a form of Aster. It blooms October every year, and gets 5 - 6 feet tall, and as you can see here, has a tendency to flop. I think it looks nice with the purple of the sage.
I am still recovering from having 30 middle schoolers invade our house yesterday. I have been cooking and baking since Friday, getting ready for them. All went well; they came, they ate, they sang, they listened to the devotional, so I guess it can be labeled a success. Libby asked me why we wanted to have it at our house. I couldn't help but laugh. I told her it wasn't that we wanted to be invaded by the church youth group, but we wanted to do it for her. I hope it makes an impression on her--that we love her, and want to do what we can to make her growing-up years fun and the best that we can for her!
Emily and I went to The Natural Gardener on Saturday. I finally used my gift certificate from my birthday that she had gotten me! I have so many lovely perennials to plant this week. I was going to start first thing this morning, but I found myself just hit with this longing to be lazy and decided to blog instead!
