Summer Days

I've been taking pictures, hoping one of them might inspire me to write something for my blog.  But the lazy days of summer have taken over, so all I have to offer is just a lot of pictures:)

For the second year in a row, a pair of robins took up residence on our front porch.  Just like last year, they produced three offspring.  This little guy was the last to fledge. . . he just didn't want to leave and kept returning to the nesting site.  I named him "Luke." (wink)


Another spring baby. . . his name is Bubba.  He belongs to Emily's boyfriend.

An afternoon with the Rockies . . .

A view from my morning walk.  The mountains are way off in the distance, and look teeny tiny.  There's still snow up there, but the temperatures here have been in the high 90s.

It's been a great year for roses. . .



My little herb garden has been keeping us well supplied, too . . .

We attended a beautiful wedding.  We've known the groom since he was three years old.  Where does the time go?

Loving the colors of summer. . .

What a gorgeous backdrop to the wedding. And your roses are looking very pretty and colorful. We have one of those butterflies hanging around our neighborhood too. The first one like that I've ever seen around here. So pretty and huge!
I can't get over how much your hubby looks like my nephew in that picture.
