We kicked off birthday week yesterday with a family pool party.  Both Paul and I have milestone birthdays this week.  I always like to point out that he is two days older.

Paul sharing his garden with his siblings.  Any time in the garden, makes him happy.

Onions anyone?

Poor Orion was in “kitty jail” during the party.  We have some family members with allergies and we wanted to make sure that he did not accidentally get out.

King of the Grill

One of the big questions yesterday, was trying to identify these two flowering bushes.
We came up with Panicled Hydrangea.  They are beautiful and the bees love them!
