Dragonfly

Guess who found another
bug he wanted me to photograph.
I shouldn't be surprised. John was a biology
major in college. That must be why he is always
dragging me somewhere to see some critter or creature.

Bright Summer Flavors in Basil Tomato Tart

There are lots of wonderful summer flavors and two of our favorites are vine-ripened tomatoes and fresh basil. I can almost smell the aroma as I type the words. When my tomatoes and basil are coming from the garden, I bring out this recipe for a delicious summertime tart that bursts with flavor.

Blooming Hoya

My Hoya plant doesn't bloom frequently but when it does, I get excited about its unusual flower.
 The plant has become very large and dense ~ almost the size of a small bush.
I have keep it in the house but this year I moved it out to the front porch to spend the summer there.
 It must be happy because it is now flowering again.

 
 
To see photos taken almost daily of the development of the tiny buds to a fully opened blossom, click this link to my post dated February 2009, Hoya Plant in Bloom.

Candid Shots

Some of my favorite photos of the kids are caught when they aren't looking.
They sure are captivated by a little fellow named Caillou.
