Before I take you on a walk about the yard I wanted to wish everyone in the good ole U.S.A. a very Happy Independence Day.
We landed in the country we gained independence from on the 4th of July!
Because of my early Thursday morning walk about I found myself another job to do and another request to make of our house guests before we left the country.
Many of the blueberries are ready for picking. This will be a nice fresh treat for the guests!
I love the hydrangeas at this stage of coloring.
We also have white ones and a small potted pink one this year.
The lavender has made it’s debut, too.
I’ll leave a note for our guests to feel free to snip the fresh thyme for their meals.
The apples won’t be ready until we return home.
So how’s your garden/yard growing?

No garden here as we’ve just moved…maybe next year.
Have a beautiful 4th…:)
Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends. ~ from The Declaration of Independence
Guess that they’re friends now! Have a happy time, you two.
Oh someone is going to enjoy those blueberries…
Happy 4th of July to you dear Ellen!!!! Your flowers and berries look just wonderful and you guests will surely enjoy them too! Safe travels and congrats on this special anniversary!!!!
Happy 4th of July to you Ellen! Enjoy your trip. Looking forward to hearing all about it!
Your guests will feel so special.
Ellen, your pictures of your yard are beautiful! Happy 4th of July to you even in the country you gained your independence from! I doubt you’ll notice them celebrating.
A very Happy 4th to you Ellen – you might want to keep quiet about it over there. haha!
Enjoy your visit to the land of our nation’s heritage! Aren’t you glad we are on friendly terms again and have been for quite a long time!
Happy Independence Day! Lovely yard and gardens. Have fun traveling.
You truly have some of the most beautiful nature growing up around you! It’s nice that you’re able to share that with your friends and neighbors. It’s amazing to me that with your busy travel schedule you are able to maintain such beauty!!!!! I just froze a quantity of blueberries this morning, but they didn’t look as pretty as yours. I’m hoping my attempt at planting lavender is successful. Yours is beautiful!
Enjoy your trip, and be safe!
