I spent Friday night to Tuesday morning camping at this lake. It was 90 miles away from home, so far enough away to get away, yet close enough to be a managable drive for a few days away. Our site wasn't lake side, it's a hike down to the lake, but it's well worth the effort. The beach is private so once we hauled our chairs, towels and toys to the waters edge, we were able to leave them down at the beach.
I said camping, right? I really did mean camping. Here was my hotel room for the four nights. And I managed to get in a little hand quilting time. I find it hard to read when people around me are talking, but it was the perfect time to relax with needle and thread.
And this is what I came home to. My watering job! This is down the side of the driveway. I over planted as some things, the Livingston Daisy, grew far bigger than I knew they would. I also planted Madame Butterfly snap dragons, which are very interesting. There is a variety of things still coming up, but everything that survived the attack of the slugs is doing really well. The hardest hit has been the marigolds.

My back yard had an excavator in it when I got home from work. I'm going to look for "before" pictures and will post an update.
....and don't ask me what happened to my blog. I tried a simple "update" and crap happened.
