Off for a weeks vacation at my SIL's beautiful home north of Chicago. We will be spending our time tubing, boating, jetskiing, and of course laying in the sun, reading and knitting will be my options of choice. We will be lucky enough to have several family members there, who live quite a distance. One Aunt and Uncle from Florida, and another from California. It will be great to see them. We have a lot of fun together. I hope you can spend some of this holiday surrounded by those you love. I thought I would leave you all with something totally different this week. Pictures of my gardens. My other SIL sent me some pics of her gardens, and I thought it would be pretty to share some of mine with you. I hope you enjoy the pics and enjoy your holiday, however you choose to spend it.
