menu plan monday ~ june 13, 2011

Seems the weather is going to be cooler this week than last, but perhaps wetter. We’re not adverse to a little rain, though. The garden would appreciate it.

The daylilies are providing a lot of color in the garden right now. This is the “common” daylily, otherwise known as a “ditch lily” around here. But if you look at it closely, there’s nothing common about it. How pretty is that?


The elderberries are blooming, too. So pretty, when you stop for a close-up look.

We hope to have weather that permits us to work in the garden this week, as we have a group of Master Gardeners coming on the 22nd for a tour. This weekend, two of my sisters and my brother-in-law came to help weed beds and spruce things up a bit. They worked so hard! And we appreciate it SO much!! And we girls got matching garden hats. 🙂 BTW, the trim on the house is being painted as I write. By next week, it should look fresh and new!
