Midsummer's night

"Who is this that appears like the dawn, fair as the moon, bright as the sun, majestic as the stars in procession? I went down to the grove of nut trees to look at the new growth in the valley, to see if the vines had budded or the pomegranates were in bloom. Before I realized it, my desire set me among the royal chariots of my people." Some serious growth going on. The above and below pictures were taken seven days apart! Finally things are starting to bloom.
We caught a game at Coors Field before the all star break. Decided we had time for it at last minute and just went for it. The Rocks lost though. It was still a lot of fun to see the team live. Also really cool to watch Ubaldo throw. Man does that guy have some nasty stuff!
Some crazy weather going on. It was super hot all week, which caused some evening thunderstorms. Managed to catch a couple bolts on film.

The cottonwoods are extra cottony this year making things extra miserable for allergy sufferers.
First squash blossom. What the heck? Super late. We're not gonna have zucchini till august?
Onion world
Borage is starting to flower. That makes us happy.

Made some new counter space and shelving for the kitchen. No more storing jars in the closet and behind the couch. Plus an extra five feet of counter space. It's like a whole new world in there for us. This is the best thing to ever happen to our kitchen. Here's bashor kitty checkin' out the handy work.
