Wordless Wednesday-Oak Creek Canyon

 

I had so wanted to have my post about starting onion seeds ready for today, but, my heat pad was curled up and I had to weigh it down with books to flatten it out..

Oh well…

Instead, here’s our drive through absolutely beautiful Oak Creek Canyon, between Sedona and Flagstaff.

So happy that the road was open!

Onion seeds and some cool Winslow AZ stuff coming, I promise!

Love, Michele

 

The Great Cape Escape

Last week my family escaped to Cape Cod! It’s one of the most beautiful places on earth, and there’s so many fun things to do. We trekked from one end of the Cape to the other and a little bit beyond up to Plymouth. Michael spends time down there every year for work but we tend to head north on vacation so it was new to the kids and I hadn’t been in a long time. DSC04529We saw gardens… some really amazing gardens! This is a bed at the Heritage Museums and Gardens. I didn’t know that this 100 acres of surprises existed until a few weeks ago. I’m hoping to do a post or two about this wonderful place!

IMG_7127We loved the beaches…lots of wild and beautiful beaches!

DSC04557We encountered some very large insects…

DSC04662There were gardens in unexpected places…

IMG_7172 We saw pristine views of Cape Cod Bay at Plimoth Plantation.

I’m planning to write a lot more about our great day there later this week.

IMG_7111We visited a Cape Cod windmill…

DSC04676and drank camping coffee.

It’s the best coffee in the world!

We swam (actually the kids swam), ate lots of cupcakes and had ice cream for dinner one night.

It was a trip of beautiful views, new experiences, family time and some great garden visits! Truly an escape like no other.

This week we’re back in Salem preparing for the start of school next week and harvesting things in the garden.

What are you up to? Are your kids back to school? How’s your garden growing?? questions, questions..

Enjoy everything (and answer one of my questions in the comments)!

Love, Michele
