Six weeks ago
The day our first grandgirl was born
we planted a garden
at her house for her
It was July
Flowers were short at the garden centers
but we managed to find some favorite perennials
Wee yellow mums for fall color
And moss ross to line the rocks.
It was a hot day
(Unusual for Minnesota)
but the flowers transplanted well.
Labor Day weekend found us back in Minnesota
To see grandgirl Lucy
And check on her garden
Which has filled in nicely.
The straggly moss roses have grown and purse into bloom.
The mums are growing
and the whole corner is a riot of corner.
We left a gift for Daughter Sarah to plant for her Daughter Lucy,
A big bag of daffodil bulbs
For spring bloom!
Food always plays an important part in get togethers . . .
Sunday, Sarah's Andy
(and two habeneros -- only Husband Jim was "brave" enough to try one!)
A taste test --
five different kinds
From plain brats, to beer brats, to Swiss cheese and chicken brats, to chili cheese brats, to "everything but the kitchen sink" brats!
And for dessert
Dutch Peach Pie
My German grandmother's recipe
The only recipe that I don't share outside the family!
The dogs are happy
We have dirty clothes to launder and put away
And found treasure to find a home for
And a dirty house to clean!
We hated to say goodbye to Lucy --
We won't see her again until Thanksgiving
And as I held her this morning before I left, she smiled at her Nana!
It's Wednesday and I'm sharing Lucy's Garden with Susan at A Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday.
