The Little Tee Pee

We have spent quite a bit of time outside this past weekend, mostly in the Garden. While I was weeding, pruning and replanting in the front flower bed, Chloe decided to make a structure out of my cuttings, and whatever else she found throughout the yard.

It went through phases over several hours. She called it her Tee Pee. Notice all the objects that ended up inside...looks like an altar for the plum....only a flower child could put this one together.

Check out its metamorphosis....








More Garden treasures...

Apricot's are ripe...we have been eating handfuls, daily....






Plums are almost ready...there's nothing like eating fruit straight from the tree.






The veggie garden is coming along...as are the weeds...more work for the Gardner.





Look at Chloe and Blake watering...those flowers are thirsty !!!



My little helpers... :)




Just loving our days of summer...

How gorgeous it all is. I can't remember the last time we watered the garden as we aren't allowed anymore with the severe drought conditions. Now half of our state is under water with floods!! It is so nice to see you enjoying summer.
