Bow Wow Beach Video

Lucky is having a blast swimming at Bow Wow Beach. Watch how he just HOPS into that lake. He and Jean really love cooling off on hot summer days there!

I like Bloggers new feature of being able to post video, but it took me 90 minutes to get this thing up. Better be faster next time. Always seems like the first time is the most confusing. I wanted to edit a little bit too, so used Windows Movie Maker. Okay, so that's probably where one hour went!!

Gardening in the summer heat

I've found that this month in Ohio it feels like a jungle out there and it's very difficult to get outside even to enjoy the flowers! I want to bolt straight from the car to the house and get inside with the air conditioning. The extreme humidity is doing a nice job with my garden though. In the seconds from bolting from the car I've notices that the combination of moisture and heat is really making my garden grow!

Rose of Sharon continues to Bloom

I can't get over how many blooms we have this year! The black eyed susans are in full force now too.

Near the deck

I cut the Lady's Mantle way way back and it looks a lot better. Sunday was a rainy day but cool enough that I could get quite a bit done.
