Don't Fence Me In

These sweet peas in Bayview don't like to be contained. I love the color of the bright pink sweet peas that bloom wildly in July and August. These just couldn't be contained any longer.

A Secret Trellis

This trellis is down a driveway, behind a house, and hugging the back of a yard. It makes me wonder what kind of people love to use this entrance to their home. Someday I wish for a trellis covering in something that climbs all over it and blooms.....dreams are good for the soul, don't you think?

You Scream, I Scream, We all Scream for

Ice Cream!! We went out for ice cream in Bay Harbor after a bike ride the other evening. I had Honey Lavender (in the front), my son had vanilla bean (on the right), and my husband, brother, and daughter all had brownie chunk. It was a lot of fun! Galley Gourmet Express in Bay Harbor has some unique flavors you can't find anywhere else. They also have handmade chocolates that are so good--ever heard of honey lavender or chai chocolate? Yummy!

Mystery Solved!

Thanks, Jim for the guess on what these were. They are actually rose hips, the largest I have ever seen! Along the bike path, there are several areas where there are roses planted and the hips right now are just beautiful. I was just surprised at how large they really get.

A Plethora or a Profusion?

What would you consider this lovely grouping of flowers to be? I love seeing all the red geraniums on the porch of the Perry Hotel in the summer, they do a nice job of keeping it really colorful. There are tables here and you can enjoy a cool (or hot) drink out on the porch and watch the world go by---or wait for someone who's shopping downtown! :)

Another Day, Another Sunset

Sunset over the Marina. A lovely place to spend the night if one has a boat!
