Back home on Friday, we did the final primping in the yard, and then in the early evening I took a camera tour. The weather has moderated, clouds covered the sun and the temps cooled considerably.
It has taken some work and a lot of water to keep everything going this spring/summer with so much heat and no rain. You'll notice the grass is still mostly green. With no real rain still in sight, we may need to back off of the watering now.
Some of our trees are showing stress, dropping brown leaves already. This area is going to lose a lot of ornamental street trees this summer.
Several of our retired teacher friends took over this garden deck Saturday morning and had a tea party. They loved it. I never got down there to take a photo, being too busy talking to others up on the patio.
Saturday morning we got the refreshments table set up and had a bit of time to sit before people began arriving a little after 10:00.
And then there was a steady trickle of NPA members throughout the day to visit with until 4:00. I never got back to taking any photos of the actual event, but for you, my virtual friends, this is your tour.
We're having a slow day today, this partly sunny and cool Sunday. Tomorrow we'll be back at it. It's time to prune the hedges.
