Yard interlude

Malcolm is walking everywhere now, and keeping up with him has gotten a lot more challenging. His favorite activity now is going outside, and he is no longer content with sitting around in one spot. Oh no, the whole yard has to be investigated afresh every time out - mosquitoes and Mama's restricted areas be damned!

All that is by way of saying that I haven't had much time for blogging this month. Here are a few pictures from our yard to make up for it.

Flowers on the liriope (monkey grass). The cooler, wetter summer bought many flowers - I don't remember this many in the past few years.

The lime tree we thought was killed in the Christmas snow storm has regenerated from its root - we will be more careful with it this winter, for sure. Here it has some raindrops from a brief afternoon shower.
