i love summer


This felt like the perfect summer weekend.  This weekend I appreciated that I can admire beet leaves while I patiently wait for them to grow...


felt awed by the beauty of pea plants (the white flowers may be the main reason I grow them)...


remembered how pea plants love to attach themselves to anything and everything...


decided my soil might be too nice to grow nasturtiums (those leaves are huge!)...


enjoyed several salads made with my beautiful freckled lettuce...


ate strawberries right off the vine...


and ate berries right off the bush...


did I mention my sister (and her friend) were in town?  Because they were, and it was awesome.  We did a little wine tasting at Cedar Creek Winery...


bought a bottle of Cedarburg Spice to make the first sangria of the season...


ate LOTS of tasty cheese and crackers...


visited Port Washington and ate fish sandwiches in honor of our Papa who loved coming here (he loved sitting on the dock and telling stories with "the old men")...


soaked in the sun and the beautiful Wisconsin summer weather...


enjoyed catching up and getting to be present with each other.  Not pictured here but very important to mention: we saw LL Cool J and Pitbull in concert at Summerfest.  They might have been some of my favorite concert experiences.  P.S. Isn't my sister gorge-ee-o-so?
