menu plan monday ~ july 28, 2014

We’re looking at a pretty quiet week, which is nice. The past few have been very busy. The twins are staying overnight with us while their daddy is at work and their mama is in Iowa with her job. It’s always fun to have the girls here. I am sure that once they get into their school schedule in a few weeks, we will be seeing less of them than we have this summer.


The daylilies are nearing the end of their season. There are some late varieties blooming beautifully, though. This is ‘Regency Heights.’ It has done very well this year. This picture was taken a few days ago and it is still loaded with buds.

The surprise / resurrection lilies are in full swing. So pretty this time of year! I have some that were here when we bought the house and some that I planted in the fenced garden that came from my grandmother’s house. Love those! I used the lilies to make a bouquet for a friend who wanted flowers to take to a funeral visitation. The bouquet has resurrection lilies, purple coneflowers, and hydrangeas.
