We were all over the place this weekend. Out on the Belle Fourche River, there had been an inch of rain. Things looked greener than the last weekend we were out. I was very pleased to catch this dragon fly and the nest of a mourning dove.
Back at the cabin the roses and iris are blooming like crazy. This is one of the many wild roses that blooms all around the cabin.
These are my Harrison's yellow roses. They can be seen at South Dakota homesteads long after the homesteader has gone. They are one of the hardiest roses I've ever seen.
My rose bed is flourishing. It looked especially beautiful on our foggy Saturday morning.
I was very happy to catch this colorful fellow amongst the flowers.
The dianthus, creeping thyme, and lamb's ear are a perfect match.
We took my husband's little Willy's jeep for a trial run. It passed with flying colors.
I was a busy weekend. We are enjoying summer every moment, because it never lasts long enough. I was also lucky enough to spend this afternoon on the porch with a good friend sharing lemonade and enjoying a long visit. How is your summer going?
