I mowed twice today. I finished remowing what I mowed earlier this week, then started on the back yard. It is so tall! We are waiting to get our rider back, then hubby will help a little with the yard. Unfortunately I see that the poison ivy that grew up a tree is coming back. I thought we had killed it off pretty well. Those roots go deep though. I sat outside as dusk was coming in. You can smell the lovely things that are blooming, both wild flowers and cultivated plants. I have a lot more iris blooming in other parts of my yard. Funny how they can be alike, yet different. White with white throats, white with yellow throats. Large showy flowers, smaller native type iris. I think my favorite time of day for now is when the sun is going down.

When the sun goes down, it is a wonderful sight to see.

Yes lots of creatures coming out and birds saying "good night" while the evening temperatures cool on down.

I like irises. They are easy to grow and are one of the most beautiful flowers.

Yes, these do not take a lot of care and I was so fortunate to have a friend share some with me two summers ago.

I did not work in the garden yesterday, it was my husband's birthday I prepared a special lunch and dinner and spent time listening to music with him. It is already too hot.

We are cooling down a little for a few days. Yes, some of the days have been very hot.

The tamarack trees are starting to green up. What a change it makes to the landscape. This morning I’m watching the goldfinches at the feeder.

Lots of entertainment around a bird feeder.

You will have to spray the poison ivy again. It must be hard to kill.
