Garden July

This year the garden has really been doing well. One of the new plants I'm growing is Liatris and they look lovely among the Cosmos.

The tomatoes are coming along nicely. These are the mini ones that are Susan's.

The main section of the garden.

The strawberries are looking good too.

The Wisteria has really been putting out vines this year.

Vacation time

Here in the US we have a tendency not to take vacations. I was one and now that I think about it the last time I had one was in 2005. I didn't go anywhere, it was a staycation. That's kind of sad actually and toward the end of next month that changes.
So far we have plans of visiting Mt Shasta, CA, and Arches National Park in Utah. It should be really good for Susan, and I, as a couple. We'll be able to spend some quality time together.
I think our not taking vacations in the US is one of the contributors to marital break ups. We aren't taking any time as couples to help build our relationships. It's necessary I think.
