It was a nice (but quick) trip to Susanville this weekend. The termatures were much nicer up there!!! Saturday, while Allison napped (see below) Mom showed me around her flower garden - what used to be the garden are. She now has a few plants, but mostly flowers.
She had a red, white, and blue garden this year. The red poppies were beautiful, but somehow I didn't get a good picture of them. I think I got sidetracked by the butterflies.
When I came home from the store on Friday, I unloaded my groceries as usual. I dropped a bag on the floor and didn't immediately pick it up - which was all that Picot was waiting for......
My garden is doing well - we ate the first of the tomatoes last night (and Ralph has killed three rats in it already - maybe his tomatoes will be safe now!) and my eggplant is ready to go too. The zucchini is slowing down because of the heat, and so are the beans.
