Blooming Tuesday

The temperatures are much more comfortable in Nova Scotia these nights. My garden likes that!
New blooms developed this weekend that I have to show you.
These two lilies were planted 4 summers ago and are for the first time blooming. Slow starters, but they sure are pretty.

And every morning brings a new and sometimes different colored Morning Glory bloom.
The other lovely bloom that graced my garden this weekend was my middle daughter Molly and her boyfriend. They are leaving for a Newfoundland holiday and came for an overnight visit. What a nice guy he is! (And I'm not just saying that because he's a home-grown Newfie boy!) They even plan to stop for an overnight visit with her grandparents, which pleases my Mom to no end! (Besides, I know my Dad will be able to ferret out who his father is, if he's an upstanding citizen -- or a sleveen! -- and whether this young man is "worth his salt"!)

Breakfast with my Molly yesterday morning was a bit of a celebration:Apricot scones, freezer strawberry jam, scrambled eggs, Havarti cheese, juice and tea ... and each others company undisturbed for an hour or so!


Being together as family is always a reason to celebrate!

Glad you were able to enjoy the company of Family, Sandy. Your scones look yummy - my favorite! My garden is also going on a binge before the first hard frost.

Lovely morning glory.

I just recently tried out Havarti cheese for the first time and really liked it. Nice and creamy! Your blooms are lovely! I think your garden is touched by a green thumb there. There is no better reason for celebration than family! That is for certain!

Your blooms are so perky and bright. Mine are cookin' in this heat no matter how many long tall drinks I give 'em. Air temp is 103 right now and the humidity is over the top.

What a beautiful Mother-Daughter breakfast you created. Your scones looked amazing. I'm droolin' here...been years since I've had scones.

You have a greatly blessed day my friend.

Sleveen? Are you a Dr. Who fan? That would be a hoot to find a real Sleveen....just not as your daughter's boyfriend. Love the blooming photos, btw. Wish I had a green thumb. Or even a green pinky...

Gorgeous breakfast and setting!
I must go have a look to see if my lilies are blooming! They are on the side of my house. I love the scent they produce. Heavenly.
