My garden is bursting with produce. The sunflowers have grown another foot since I took the photo below in early July. Mom flew out from Maryland to visit and attend the opera with Caroline and me. Three different operas by the Des Moines Metro Opera in one weekend! We had a great time. I hope your outdoor and indoor adventures are going well this summer.
My first sunflower! I also planted mammoth field sunflowers that will form giant heads of seeds later.
Black raspberry pie is my favorite. I bought this at a local farm.
Caroline and her friends enjoy playing board games on the picnic table. This game looks incredibly complicated!
Mom and I are ready for a night at the opera!
