What’s Growin’

I’ve been a bad blogger.

My only excuse is that the LCD screen on my camera broke on the way home from my trip to San Francisco. I sent it off for repair under its warranty, and was camera-less for about a month. Then, when I finally got it back, it had a completely new problem- the lens keeps getting stuck. I’m trying to decide if I’d rather just deal with it, or send it back for repairs again.

At least it’s still taking nice pictures. Here are some taken in our garden this afternoon. Any of you who live in the northeast know what a challenging summer it’s been. The sun barely came out in June, and July wasn’t much better. It’s gorgeous out there today, so here’s hoping August brings much more sun!
