Frogs and growing things

 I do not have a green thumb so I do  get excited when things grow and bloom and thrive despite my short comings. July and August are filled with blooming things and growing things in our yard. The kids love to show me new blooms and pick things from our tiny garden that consists of basil, cucumbers and cherry tomatoes. We also have 2 blueberry bushes. I am not impressed however when Samuel picks green tomatoes off the tomato plants.
 In the 3 years that we have lived here we have done alot of ripping out of overgrown bushes and planting of new trees, shrubs and flowers. We would love to plant a TON more but at least we can add a few things every year.
 Bluerry bushes. Slow going but every year we get more so eventually we will have enough to make a pie?
 Cherry tomatoes
 Black Eyed Susans
 Both bushes on the side of the steps are new. Mike spent several hours ripping out the old over grown bushes and the roots. So many roots.

 Japanese Maple

 We have alot of frogs in our yard and the kids love catching them and watching them for a few minutes and then letting them go. We find teeny tiny ones and big ones.
