Green pea popsicles

In China, the manufacturers of ice cream novelties think a little differently than the American manufacturers. This isn't actually ice cream. It is crushed green peas mixed with a little sugar but it is made just like a Popsicle. My daughter gives it to my grandson after she has finished her shopping and they are on their way home. Then he's free to trash his shirt. In this photo he is almost 17 mos old. Pretty good motor skills.
Here is my daughter, son-in-law, and grandson on the Great Wall of China.

Here is my husband and grandson attending a Yankee game on July 29th, 2010. They attended with a large party of relatives. I see the photo is dated the 30th. It (the camera) must still be on Chinese time.

A few of the latest bloomers from my garden.

Hemerocallis 'RAM'

I have several hemerocallis cultivars but I think this one may be my favorite. It is RAM, bred by Oscie Whatley.

A few photos from the past few days

A beautiful bride with her four nephews. My grandson is the one all the way to the right. He's definitely the cutest of the four. This is the bride that my co-mother-in-law and I made this quilt for. My daughter, my grandson's mother, is the one all the way to the left. The first time she's ever worn high heels.
My grandson and my son-in-law. My grandson is just the most cheerful little guy.
