This is a sterile version of Lythrum…its usually the star of the flower bed but not this year…

The Hydrangea has been beautiful up until this week and our hot weather pretty well wrecked them…

The Hostas are flowering…I usually cut all of these off after they bloom for a week or so…just because I don’t care for the flowers…

It’s All About the Lemonade…

A sunny summer day in June should be perfect picnic weather…NOT…it was so hot when I shot these photos that the ice in the lemonade melted almost instantly, so think cool thoughts when viewing these photos…

Ice cold lemonade is the perfect summer drink for a picnic…

Lemonade

  • 6 lemons (juice of 6 lemons)
  • 1 cup sugar, or to taste
  • 4 cups cold water
  • 1 lemon, cut crosswise into very thin slices

Preparation -
Mix the lemon juice and sugar together in a large pitcher. Stir to dissolve all the sugar, then add the water. Serve over ice. Place a lemon slice on top of each glass before serving.
