Evening stroll in our garden

Hot temperatures kept us inside much of the day; but when it cooled down this evening, Mama and I enjoyed a lovely stroll through our garden. We discovered this gorgeous two-tone Dahila, which we were pleasantly surprised to see reappear. Today’s #OneGoodThing with Mama was an evening stroll in our garden! What was your #OneGoodThing…

And the party planning begins…

For the last three summers, Mama and I have hosted a lively garden party to celebrate her survival against brain cancer.

Garden arch underway

I finished construction on our backyard garden arch this afternoon, using zip ties to attach wood lattice to pvc pipe.
