Family Visits

We had visits from Dewey & Susan and Pat, Amber & Griff this week. Lots of fun. Dew & Sue were on their way to West Virginia for business meetings. A busy week with Harry called for jury duty (and dismissed). Susan & I took a trip to Logansport on Tuesday to visit an old friend. One of our beekeeper association members broke her ankle and needed some assistance with her hives, so Harry & I went to Kendallville yesterday to put extra boxes on her hives. Spent the rest of the day trying to catch up on some gardening - way too much to do out there.

Summer is Here!

Last week was a busy one. Highlights of the week included a trip to the zoo with Seth and a visit to Harry & Teresa's with an excursion at the Chicago Botanical Gardens. In Teresa's words - "It's all good!"

The Chicago Botanical Gardens

Saw lots of wedding parties in progress.

Grandpa with some form of giant borage plants - "Tower of Jewels"

Lots of esplanade & unusual pruning techniques - these are apple trees.

Allie & a Japanese lantern - good fortune lights the way in the garden.

Plants are fun!

H.O. IV and V - they ran 5 miles earlier in the day (and walked an extra one).

Look at the fish in there!
