James calls these "alien flowers" because we don't remember their real name. They've been blooming like this for three straight months.

Our tiger lilies are finally blooming!

This is one of the climbing roses that grew through the wrought iron part of the garden wall.

Max likes to play in the garden - lots of dirt to dig in!! He's not happy here because I just scolded him for eating green tomatoes.

Our tomato plants have gotten huge.

Look at all the tomatoes that I picked this week!!!

For all those of you who think I've disappeared off the face of the're half right. I'll be spending the next two weeks holed up in my living room studying for the bar exam. It's miserable, and I'd much rather be hanging out with all of you, but unfortunately, I'm going through this lawyer hazing ritual - it's like hell week when you join a fraternity, except that it actually lasts for 13 weeks. It's almost over, though, and soon I will emerge into the sunlight again...I promise...

We got a new puppy this week! His name is Max, and "officially" he belongs to James, because I think that every man and boy should have a dog of his own. We got him from the Missouri Humane Society, and he's a German Shepherd/Golden Retriever/possibly Boxer. He's a really sweet little guy, and he's more interested in playing with people than with toys. He loves to lay in your lap and cuddle, but pretty soon, he'll be MUCH to big for that. (He's gonna be HUGE.)
