Today would have been my Dad's 98th birthday and there are times it hardly seems possible that he has been gone for 15 years.

This is our maple in the back yard
green and full. I remember when my
Dad planted it over 50 years ago.

The clouds were glowing as the sunset this evening.

The rain is with us most days and most days without fail we
at least see some blue sky before the sun sets.
The picture on the left was taken at a restaurant out on the
Garden Peninsula. We spent a lovely evening enjoying good
food and the company of our next door neighbors.

On June 19, 2010 this little man made Tom and I grandparents for the 1st time.
Where did the time go?
Happy 7th Birthday, Noah! We love you forever and always.

Pink clouds as the sun was setting.

Decided to take a walk around the yard. With all the rain every
thing is a beautiful green. The climbing roses above and on the
right have come back. Two summers ago we thought we had
lost them to the winter cold the year before. Last year we had
some green but this year they are really looking good.

Some of the plants around our walkways.

The reason the Stinger B is still parked
in the driveway. We had planned on
putting new gravel in this area and
moving it over but it with all the rain
it is not looking promising.

It was an interesting day weather wise. It seemed like one minute we had blue skies and white fluffy clouds and the next dark storm clouds. Then one direction would be a beautiful blue and the opposite dark and ominous. All of sudden there would be a downpour and the next minute the sun was out.

Have I mentioned I love clouds. The white fluffy ones against the blue sky that continuously change shape as they float by.  The ones that turn the sky pink or orange at sunset bringing breath taking color to the end of the day. The dark, dark storm clouds as they creep across the sky ominous yet strangely fascinating. Every shape and every color they are all beautiful.
