(mostly) outside in june

Les and Riley, always happy to hang out in the fenced yard.

Lilies! All transplanted last year from different place in the yard. Now i kind of wish i’d planted them someplace where we could see them more often, but I think this is where they’ll stay.

Can you see Sweetie there on the swing behind the hydrangea? It’s funny, the bright white flowers have already changed into a deep pink.

My other hydrangea bush at the side of the house continues to get chomped by deer so i’m going to transplant that into the fenced yard next spring. wow, such far-away plans!

On this boating day i jumped into the lake. because it has been so hot here the lake is now at about bathwater temperature. you can see here the fabulous new boat top that kevin bought for me, which took such a long time to install. here it is tilted back to shield us from the sun.

The handles on my wicker clothes basket so kevin turned it into yet another kitty house. Riley loves it and Les tried to squeeze himself inside but we didn’t think he’d make it, but he somehow managed it. I wish i’d gotten a photo of when he was halfway in.

Because he doesn’t have enough boats, Kevin has been hard at work helping Glenn clean up and repair this sailboat of Glenn’s. This is Glenn’s smaller sailboat that was stored for many years at a guy’s repair lot. the guy was going to repair the boat but never did it. Then the guy died, and it seemed like it might be tricky to get the boat back, but about a month ago the new owner of the lot tracked Glenn down and called him, saying he wanted the boat off the lot, so that guy delivered it to our driveway. Kevin and Glenn have enjoyed working on it, and you can see Kevin’s sailboat in back of him, and maybe somebody will actually get a sailboat out on the water this summer?

And because Kevin did so much work on Glenn’s boat, he bought us dinner at the Yacht Club! Carryout, that is. Kevin, Mom and I enjoyed it on our deck.

baby deer! there’s always some kind of wildlife in the yard between our house and mom’s.

And here’s a baby groundhog in that yard. This one’s in the back.

Here’s a short video of some of the babies.

and now i am getting so close to wrapping up photos from june…

ok then,

mrs. july hughes.
