It’s hard to believe, but the time has come for the first Alaska cruise of my summer. Yes, I did say the first, because I really am going on two! This one is all paid for by my dear mother. I am going along with her on a sea/land tour from Vancouver to Denali. My two sisters will be on this expedition too.
Then in August, Jim and I are going on an Inside Passage cruise from Vancouver, which will be a mini family reunion for him: one of his brothers, his sister and their spouses will be attending that one. I feel sort of like a jet setter this year.
So anyway, I will be off line for a couple of weeks.
I got busy and finished the top half of the son and daugher-in-law’s quilt. I think it looks rather spectacular myself.
The two nests of baby robins I featured in the Snow in May post have developed nicely. By the time I get home, they will be fledged and prancing about the lawn in youthful plumage. Right now, they are rather cute.
The yard is wonderful. The wisteria will be all done by the time I get home. It is in the last flush of bloom right now. When you stand under the pergola, it literally hums with bees.
There is a snowball bush in the stroll garden that is in full bloom right now. Also, my clematis have begun their display.
And the rock garden is looking very nice. I imagine I will have to dead head the candytuft when I get home. And hopefully the dianthus will not be completely finished. I just love to stand there and smell it when it’s in full bloom.
Well, you all stay healthy and happy while I’m off gallivanting, okay?
