Purple Cones of Summer

It was another lovely perfect day and I was off all day to enjoy it for a change 🙂 Hubby and I got so much more done today and even had time to take the dogs for a walk. The summer flowers are out and were showing their faces today. Purple ConesThe purple cones are in full bloom here and I think they are just so pretty. They were perfect photo subjects today 🙂Purple Cones 2 They seemed to love this weather even though they haven’t had rain. After a long day working outside I did some more canning (cherry preserves and tomatoes tonight). I am happy to be in canning season again… I just love to fill my pantry and basement shelves with all sorts of goodies for the winter. Full pantry = happy family 🙂
