Summertime Walk & Lunch on the Patio~June 20, 2007
Just before noon, we walked around the gardens. This Daylily, in the side garden, is the only one blooming. We saw lots of buds. I can hardly wait to see them blooming around the little chair.
Queen Anne's Lace, growing near the creek. This is one of my favorite wildflowers.
Lilies, growing in the garden next to the creek. The background photo is Hosta, in bloom, next to the patio. There are still no blooms on the Hydrangea near the white fence. The Daylilies there have buds, but no blooms.
The Endless Summer Hydrangea, next to the patio have no blooms. They are late blooming, because of late frost this spring.
After our walk, we returned to the patio, for a delicious nutritious lunch of Rootbeer Floats. We were very health conscious, using no sugar added vanilla ice cream and Fitz's Diet Root Beer. They were very tasty, but we decided, next time we will throw caution to the wind and use regular Fitz's Root Beer and heavy duty vanilla ice cream!
Fitz's is bottled in St Louis. It has an interesting story, you might like to read.

While I began reaching into the “wayback machine” (love Rocky and Bullwinkle), for table photos , I was caught up in discovering posts from 7 years ago. Seems like yesterday, when I did this post.
I was going to do the June 19, 2007 post, but this one was more fun. On the 19th of June 2007, J had surgery. I can’t remember which surgery it was. If you know how many surgeries J has had, you know why he keeps a little journal. I think it was one of the rotator cuff surgeries.
Writing about a Fitz’s Root Beer Float was a lot more pleasant than writing about torn rotator cuffs.
This tablecape research has led me to blog fodder in more ways than just photos. Throwback Thursday…delving into the archives of Back Porch Musings or the evolution of a blog. Perhaps I will make this a regular Thursday series. We’ll see…
