My garden, part of which is pictured above is showing its late summer colors. Although Spring is most wonderous around our neighborhood, in summer we have the treat of our Crepe Myrtle trees.
This year, my lavendar and white ‘David’ Phlox are also doing well, for a change. Disgusted, a few years ago, I ripped them out. The root that remained came up again, promised to do better, and the result you see in the photo below.
David’s daughter Julie’s mom and stepfather are moving to Florida, and clearing their house. Her mom gave Julie a stack of old photos that had belonged to David. Julie asked her Dad to identify the photos, so yesterday they took some time to go through them, he identifying places he lived in: Narva, Estonia, Heidleberg Germany, and Chapal Hill NC, Julie writing the information on the back of each photo. I’m happy they took the time. I wish every child would take the time to do this.
