I am usually a black thumb when it comes to gardening, so I am excited that this pot I planted is doing so well! I love flowers! (Especially when I don't kill them within the first week) Hooray! I don't remember which type of flowers I chose ... but the red ones attract hummingbirds, I have found! I love those little surprises flowers bring. Let me know if any of you know the names of these beauties ... Next year you can take an old watering can and make it into something new, too!

Summer afternoons are always so much fun! I set up a couple extra chairs outside so the kids could have a little nook to eat on the porch. Something about eating out of doors is so refreshing on a sunny afternoon. I used the table runner I made a couple of years ago for a mini tablecloth with just in time for the fourth of July!
We did make an excursion to the Bainbridge Island Regional Library yesterday and came back with a bag full of fun! I loved the Japanese gardens that surrounded the building! The kids are officially signed up for their summer reading program, and I even picked up the Aloha Quilt to start off some summer reading. Since we are new to the area it was so much fun to find an amazing kids section. I believe the children's section is about the size of our Kingston library. We are hoping the levy passes here so that we will have a new library in a few short years! But until then, we are going to pop into the nine libaries throughout the county to check them all out. Join us on our adventure and let us know what you have found!
