I bet the other photographers at the Captureyour365 must think that I only take pictures of flowers in the summer time. But it's so nice to have color around here and this summer is full of flowers around the yard. The first picture is a repeat prompt on where I stand with the theme being heatwave. It wasn't a heat wave, but it was a beautiful day for sitting out in the yard reading. I had taken this picture on the right first, but once I saw the flowers in the background while on the adirondack chairs with my bare feet, I knew that was the picture for the day.
It was my husband's birthday and after a lazy morning, early afternoon we decided to golf a relaxing nine holes and not repeat the 18 long, humid holes of Saturday. We had one son join us as the other decided that the sport is just too frustrating ( can't say I blame him there). We walked both days since the birthday present for my husband was a new push cart for his clubs.
I did not make the birthday cake, but the youngest son went on line to the food network and made a birthday cake from scratch. We had no sour cream and he used one of my honey single yogurts as a substitute. I made the frosting and the cake came out perfectly. A little too sweet, but can be tweaked the next time around. We all enjoyed it though!

At least part of my day was relaxing. The photo above for today is a flower from the bottom of the driveway that I noticed last week while mowing the lawn. The blossom is just so red!
