Day 215, June 21: My garden is growing and, at the moment at least, is weed free. Some friends came over yesterday to help out and they got stuck with weeding duty. But, they did a great job.
Day 216: Blizzard going for a car ride.
Day 217: This year was the 15th anniversary of the Lutheran Social Services Russian adoption program. They had a big picnic to celebrate. Dawn and Larissa came up for the weekend. In this picture are: Sasha, our Russian van driver; Ira, one of the Russians who works with LSS in Madison and travels with groups; Larissa; Greg; Dr Larissa, the director of the orphanage in Russia; and Dina, who also works with LSS in Madison.
Day 218: On Dawn and Larissa’s last night in Wisconsin, we had a bonfire. Dawn and Blizzard finally became friends. If it had been up to Dawn, they would have been friends right away 🙂
Day 219: A family of barn swallows took up residence on our clothes line for a day of learning to fly.
Day 220: My garden hasn’t been doing very well so far this year. These are the first tomatoes I’ve found, just starting to grow. I can’t wait!!
