Denver and Home

When I go to Denver there are all these cute houses in the neighborhood where Sarah, Alex, and Ali live. Sarah doesn't really want me to take pictures of the houses, but I think I am going to start clicking away the next time I go. This one is just my style! Although I'd most likely have more flowers in front.
Ali's house is landscaped. It's been two summers with just dirt and weeds, so it looks great.
Sarah called this their Dr. Seuss tree. I didn't notice the trunk when she sent me the first pictures, but it is a unique specimen!
I had a Home Depot gift certificate that I used and got a diamond tipped drill bit for ceramics and a new pot. I liked it so much that I had to see if there were some in Greeley and brought home two more.
The heat has finished off my lilies, but I did manage to get a pink one before it faded.
Tomorrow is a family picnic and we will also celebrate my dear FIL's 90th birthday! He's a real firecracker, born on the 4th of July. I love him dearly!♥♫

My step-grandfather was born on the 4th of July, too, and he was a real firecracker! We would have the wildest 4th of July picnics in Kansas - it's a wonder we didn't burn the town down. Your daughter's house looks so cute all landscaped. Have a great weekend. Sally

A lovely series of photographs and your flowers are so pretty. I like to take pictures of homes too because I have always enjoyed the different styles, and I especially love homes in the country. A belated Happy Birthday to your father-in-law. An auspicious day to be born on.
