What happened???

Alot.  For those of you asking where I've been, welllllll  where do we start.  The weather has been freaky to say the least.  Our electric was out, TWICE, and our phone service was out several times as well.  One time for DAYYYYYYS.  Oh how we love our electric and phones! LOL
I had a real bad bout with migraines as well, it lasted almost five days. 
Life is beginning to settle down again here.  We've been trying to get our gardens done.  Look what's in the greenhouse, waiting to be planted!
Sweet Annie, tons of it.  I've got about 3 dozen plants in the ground, this crop will be a wee bit later.  I'll have tons for myself as well as for sale at the end of the summer...yay!

Take a close look at this picture, there's something red in there!
I've planted this little patch in one of my flower beds, it's been very fruitful this year (no pun intended!)
So one afternoon, me and my helpers headed out to the farm market for some fresh veggies and peaches!
Aren't these some cute helpers?!
One is a bit of a ham, the other won't usually pose very well for pics!
At the market they had all sorts of "babies" so we checked those out prior to leaving.

We picked berries when we returned.

Between the fresh berries and the fresh peaches, we were able to enjoy THIS after dinner!!

Hope you are enjoying the start of  your summer! 
 I'm spending my week at the sewing machine!

Those children have the cutest faces.

Maureen, WOW, you have had a lot going on. I so hate it when we loose power. How did our ancestors ever do without electricity. And of course my internet and my cell phone. I remember being a little girl in grammer school and we got a little pamplet every week called "The Weekly Reader" I remember one of the articles stated that one day people would be able to drive and talk on a phone at the same time. I can still remember , how neat. Never thought in my lifetime. Don't I sound ancient?
Love your helpers. THey both are darling. You can just see their personalities all over their faces. And the fruit looks delicious. Have a great evening.
