Summer Miscellany

Staying cool at forest school

Red, white, blue

Better late than never with the red, white and blue!

Watching fireworks on the 4th



In Onondaga Cave

The one rock you are allowed to touch in the cave

These drip down and form…


Cave Ceiling

This was the coolest “room” of the cave

Onondaga cave is just as impressive as Meramec Caverns and as a bonus it is within a state park so there are other things to do there.

Such as go for a swim in the Meramec River!

There were tons of these along the river’s edge

Back in the garden, things are pretty neglected right now (it is so hot! and soooo much school work!) but there are still a few nice sights and things.


Dill and in the background is a flower called “candytuft”

Garlic (one bulb harvested anyways); this one with the root bit torn off when I dug it up)

Zinnias of all different colors are popping up

This hardy hibiscus is right in the center of the garden

Dragon’s Eggs (cucumbers)

I must be on to something, right?! ahaha

Scorched love in a mist seed pods

Chicken snack!

The butterflies mob the mimosa trees all day

Most of the sunflowers are quite short

Happy summer!

    Nice flower arrangement (post 7/4)!
    That cave looks awesome – what a ‘cool’ thing to do on a hot summer day. :)
    I thought of your family this morning as I was down at our creek having a cooling wade (not deep enough to swim). We’re having a hot spell like you have in summer.
    I love your photos, I really like the dill blossom with pink bokeh and your sweet bunny.
    Any trips planned east or is there too much coursework?
    Stay cool!

      Those flower arrangements were actually made on the 4th (just not posted until now!) Playing in a creek is one of my favorite things. Thanks, glad you like the photos! We will have a short trip to the smokey mountains in August but yes there is too much coursework. SO MUCH!!! More than ever! Barely able to do anything else!!! But nearing the end so there’s a light at the end of the tunnel! Thanks for the comments!
