Zinnias in the garden
Aug 18, 2011

A lot has been going on the past few months, jumping from place to place waiting to close on a house, things falling through, back up plan falling through... We're in the process of the second back up plan now, so we're hoping things will work out. 

Anyway, we stayed with a lovely sister from our ward who so kindly took us in for SEVEN weeks (yes, you read that right. She and her husband are so great) while we thought we were closing on a house. She is a wonderful gardener. This year her garden was full of zinnias. I had read in a magazine that zinnias are good to put in gardens because they bring the pollinators in. I was planning on planting some in my garden, but I never thought it could look as pretty as hers. I couldn't help but take pictures. I'm hoping to have a beautiful garden like this someday.

We went to Island Park and Yellowstone in July and had a wonderful time as we always do. I love being surrounded in nature. It makes me feel so peaceful and appreciative of the beautiful things God has made for us.
