I walked outside to find this beautiful hanging basket completely dried out and shot. I immediately flooded it and flooded it some more and misted it. Later that evening I was rewarded with the full beauty once again.
Whew! Wouldn't it be nice if we could do that? Just add lots of water and we're beautiful once again? Wishful thinking. I'm just happy that I didn't lose my flowers. Stay cool. Diane
P.S. My brother got home from the hospital yesterday. He has a long way to go before he is healed - 6 months probably. He's in Buffalo now so I'm going to go over to see him as soon as they get settled - I can't wait to see his face and also see if I can be of any help to his wife.

Lunch was waiting for us at Halibut Bay. It's a unique place with buildings of every color along a boardwalk approached only by boat. Magical!!
Back on shore I was able to spend time(not enough) with Amanda's friends and see their homes. Above is Ellen who lives alongside a lake and has a beautiful log home and 2 wonderful dogs.
Thank you for letting me reminisce. I know you've seen some of these pictures before but thanks for bearing with me. Alaska is a magical place and these two treat me like a queen. It's wonderful. Diane

The mountains smelled divine, all very nice people and dogs, which of course I loved. Many of them, including my little great grandson, had already been up there for several days. It was so nice to be part of the festivities and especially to see my family. Diane

On this day exactly 100 years ago, July 3, Walter Sullivan and Jennie Yates, my grandparents, were married. I think there was some significance to this. They loved this country and they loved the 4th of July and that's why they chose it. You probably couldn't get married on the 4th because everything was closed. So chose this day which was almost the 4th. My daughter Amanda and her husband, Gregg were married on the 4th and he proposed to her at the top of the Empire State Building on the 4th. My dad and his brother went to fight in WW2 and my brother went to Vietnam. I will always love July 4th and I will always defend our guns. Diane
