The First Lily in the garden in the Backyard
It’s mid-August…which in Maine means summer is finally here. We had rain for all of June….and most of July. We’ve been waiting anxiously for the NICE weather to get here and for things to start blooming in the garden. This is our first house….and we just moved in December 27th. We spent alot of months looking at giant snowbanks, melting snowbanks and brown grass in the backyard. FINALLY everything is green and starting to bloom….so it’s a good opportunity to take photos of Stella outside. And so I can look back at the photos in December….when we’re up to our eyeballs in snow….we can remember what summer was like!!!
When I first saw this photo I thought, "Zoinks...she needs a haircut...where are her eyes?"
Then I just realized she was working her angles like Tyra Banks tells the girls on America's Next Top Model.
A slight ear flap malfunction....
Looking so cute next to the beautiful honeysuckle!
Having a little pout like the diva that she is.
Checking out the lily. Papa doesn't usually allow her to lay in the garden like this....
He made a special exception to get these photos.
And then he couldn't take it anymore and made her get back on the grass. Look at her glare at the camera. Or is she glaring at Papa?
I can't wait for the rest of these to bloom....so pretty!!!!
And on a sad note....I saw THIS in the backyard...a red leaf on the Burning Bush in the backyard. The leaves will all turn bright red for fall....this one stupid red leaf can only mean that fall is on the way.
