At a recent birthday party for the two-year-old son of some friends, we spied this in their backyard:
Passion flower (at least I think that's what they're called) in full bloom
I swear, every time I see these flowers I think they're fake. They seem like they'd be more appropriate on a sci-fi movie set than growing on a vine in suburbia.
And tonight, Chris made what is fast becoming a summer favorite - pizza on the grill:
Summer dinner al fresco
His pizza was still inside, getting sliced, when I snapped this picture. The other plate has a small pile of grilled zucchini, which I made (I know, I find it hard to believe myself) and which were fabulous as well. If it weren't for the 90+ degree heat, I could really love this whole summer thing.
