Happy 4th of July!

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.

July yard 021We 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.

July yard 016Many of the blueberries are ready for picking. This will be a nice fresh treat for the guests!

July yard 017I love the hydrangeas at this stage of coloring.

July yard 013The lavender has made it’s debut, too.

July yard 020

July yard 005I’ll leave a note for our guests to feel free to snip the fresh thyme for their meals.

July yard 014The apples won’t be ready until we return home.

So how’s your garden/yard growing?

  1. 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…

  3. Happy 4th of July to you Ellen! Enjoy your trip. Looking forward to hearing all about it!
    Your guests will feel so special.

  4. 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.

  5. 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!

  6. 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!
