I’ve not done a very good job of revving up my blogging productivity this summer. I’ll chalk it up to hard labor in the garden, erratic work schedule and a busy visitor schedule. We’ll see how things go from here on out.
I tried my darnedest to stay true to what’s blooming TODAY but the morning light just didn’t want to cooperate so I cheated a bit and had to use a couple from this past week.
Short on commentary and long on pictures, hopefully the story will tell itself…there’s a lot going on at Mardi Gras Gardens right now!
