Thank you all very much for your warm wishes and patience with this blogger during the past couple weeks as we were dealing with Dwight's series of hospitalizations. He is home and much better now and hopefully I can now attempt to catch up on my blogging activities. Thanks again.

ECUMENICAL ALERT: Today, November 17th has formerly been known as the Feast of St. Gregory, the Wonder Worker--It is now known as the Feast of St. Elizabeth of Hungary. This is of special note because it has in the past and is STILL known as the Birthday of Sisi!!!
Hope you have a wonderful Birthday Sisi!!!
THOSE LAZY, HAZY, CRAZY DAYS OF SUMMER
Because I am so backlogged in preparing my photos, these photos of mid-summer will feel like a sentimental look back to the carefree warm weather days of summer......................

We start off at the Farmer's Market where the mid-summer bounty was still in supply...........
Lots to choose from...........................
Including some beautiful dahlias...............
We stop by to visit Sisi in her garden.........................
Where she points out some of her more unique specimens to Karen..................
What a gorgeous garden!.................
Both formal and inviting................
Sunflowers, hollyhocks and gladiolas are just part of the display.................
Check out these little hollyhock ladies floating in their pool................
A gorgeous combination of color and form....................
Late afternoon finds Dwight down on the plaza..........................
As several times a week we walk down to enjoy the Plaza Nights mix of entertainment.............
This band is so good that these ladies are willing to suffer through a seating situation that appears to be designed by the Spanish Inquisition, just to hear the band's music.................
Louie has a July birthday.....................

The end of another busy summer day..............................
And we're back where we started--Ah! Rest!!!
