We were out of town and out of touch for a bit.   I ca't wait to get caught up with everyone's blog posts and see what you've been up to! This tall bright gladiola was a surprise to come home to.  

We celebrated Father's Day on Sunday, and Olivia's UCSB graduation -and moved her from her housing there.  She was the last one to move out of her apartment, I had a large refrigerator to clean out (6 roomates, hahaha).

We had such a fun busy weekend!


My three 💖, we had a great Father's Day lunch -Mexican, James's favorite.  
Delphinium 'Cobalt Blue' sent a second bloom.
I'm anxious to have a good look around the garden.
Dr. never enjoys it when we leave for a few days, I think he's saying "don't do that again"

  1. Welcome back, Tracy! And congratulations to Olivia! My husband and I got our undergraduate degrees at UCSB too :)

    That gladiola is a stunner. I'm sure Dr Feelgood will forgive your absence - eventually.

  11. It sounds like a great weekend, celebrating multiple accomplishments and happy occasions with your absolute favorite people! Congratulations and many more to come.
    Your flower babies were doing quite well in your absent... under a watchful eye and carful management of "the Dr". :-D
    Yes. more Gladiolas. They are quite lovely in summer gardens and take little room.

  12. Yikes, that is serious stink-eye from the Dr.

    You have a beautiful family, not just a beautiful garden. You must be very, very proud of them! (And aren't you exhausted?)
