Yesterday, we went to Cafe Bella and then to Walmart. Karl and I each had our own shopping carts, with different items on our lists. We loved seeing the pumpkins and bought one for the ash tree stump.

Karl took these photos last year. I thought, “It is healing to walk by the river.” Then I realized the river is healing too. Later today, we will review photos from yesterday and share here the next few days.

Garden Journal

Flowers from a planter that we bought on sale at Menards in Sheboygan. We went there for supplies, as Karl completed a major plumbing repair here this weekend.

The previous three photos show hosta and ferns by the side of our beloved old house.

Photos are by Karl today.

Mid-July Photos

Flowers bloom in the lawn.

We bought the begonia planter at Walmart in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. You can see how pretty it is on the ash tree stump with the hosta.
