Our former owners built a planter in the front yard. In reality, it is the only planter in the many yards up and down the street. I decided we needed to make a bigger impression with it as it is the only planter. Should I say, we are being self conscience, as we are new to the neighborhood. My wife picked out the flowers and to the most part got it planted. I added some cannas and, my wife placed more flowers to the sides on Saturday. I will keep you updated on the progress of the flower garden.
This is the place where the bleeding heart and New England bluebells are planted. Once they are gone they were cut back. There are coneflowers there and some oral bells.
We are headed to southern Iowa this afternoon for an anniversary celebration. My dad's first cousin and her husband are celebrating their 69th wedding anniversary. Also they both had 90th birthdays the past two months. My mom was a country school teacher and taught Leona at a country school. My dad is the one who was related. His dad and her mother were brother and sister. The kids are all second cousins.
I attended school with their three kids so it will be good to see them again. Of course all the kids are in their 60s. We will celebrate Father's Day with a meal out on Monday as the day will be too scheduled to have that happen today. We will stop at the cemetery on the way home where family is buried at Murray.
I wish you all to have a good day and thanks for stopping in today.
