We've had a wet and dry and cool and hot summer. I understand crops aren't happy with the cool, but our hostas love it. They have put out more blooms then ever, and the heliposis is at least 8 feet tall. The garden is an absolute riot of blooms.
Yesterday evening a daughter and two grandsons came over to use our grill to grill shish-ka-bobs. Then to our great pleasure, they asked if they could eat at our house and would we join them. They were delicious, as was the grilled corn on the cob.
