Hi there, I'm sitting here enjoying some air conditioned comfort (whew!) and thought that perhaps I should check in since I have been MIA for awhile. I have been scrambling here trying to do some serious catching up. There have been ornaments, calendars and some just-for-fun projects all going on at the same time. Of course when you do that, nothing actually gets done and that is exactly why I don't have much to share. One day I'll just finish everything at once and we will all be in for a shock.Minnesota Landscape Arboretum. I have wanted to go for quite some time especially now that we are scouting out potential replacement trees for our backyard. So, we took a lot of photos like the one above. We came looking for trees but found dozens of flowers and shrubs we also liked. So we snapped photos of the labels for future reference.
