Well it is pretty obvious that I didn't bang out a bunch of blogs about our recent trip to southern France. Some how life intrudes on our best intentions. I was fairly pleased however that the home and park gardens did not get too overgrown with weeds, as I had tried to get the gardens ready for some self cruise control. The sun is out this morning, and it promises to be another day where I give up and seek the shelter of air conditioning. So before it became unbearable, I took a stroll out back to grab some quick shots on July 7, 2011.
