Six on Saturday

A quick check-in this time after our return from the Toronto area. Our trip was filled with travels back to the old farm, visiting good friends, an award for my husband, a visit from our son who lives in Boston, and also plants for me. (Clematis and Thalictrums)

Our daughter has kept us busy with activities with the children: a play performance, a concert (today!) and a Birthday event tomorrow. To top it off, her Mama goat had triplets, one for each child to name.

Somehow, I managed to mow the lawn, weed and water between events.

I love subtle but beautiful Enkianthus.

    1. Yes it is. He is a fabulous carpenter…and I pay him for all kinds of work. He has made a bench for us, repaired items in our house. added missing trim here and there…all kinds of good stuff.

  1. That’s a very elegant and beautifully made potting bench. I’m feeling quite envious. And the enkianthus I’ve never seen before-it’s easy to understand why you love it.
