July/August 2017 – week 31

Welcome back to this year’s photo-a-day journey. I’m sharing little bits of my daily life & travels.

This week’s weather has been another perfect summer week again – some rain, lots of sun, and even a short-lived thunderstorm. 

Now onto this week’s photos:

July 30 – hostas in bloom; my hosta garden is putting up a spectacular show this year.

I am living my dream life in the country! I love photography, travelling, cooking, baking and I even try my hand at quilting.
