Summer 2012 in Meridian

03 September

Enjoy some of my favorite shots from around Meridian Idaho, Summer 2012.  All taken with my iPhone 4S, with an Instagram twist.  Find me on Instagram at @angelabdesign.

Bees just love my salvias.  Can’t believe this guy didn’t give me sting – I was super close.

Summer cupcakes made by my sweet neighbor Kelli.  Every year she throws a Welcome Summer party for all the kids in the ‘hood.

My boy in his fedora with a thrifted cane and suit jacket.  And British accent.  I am relishing the last bit of his creative play, before teenager-itis claims him.

Downtown Meridian Idaho. Charming.

Groundcover in my front yard.  Wish I knew what it was… So cool looking and maintenance-free.

Daylilies in my backyard.  I LOVE the shades of peach with the bright center.  These daylilies bloomed for most of the summer.

Preserving her modesty.  This is our cat Jasmine, the most affectionate and lovey animal we have ever had.

My son graduated from the Hunter’s Ed program this summer.  Can’t wait for him to go hunting with my Dad.  Memories to make!

White hardy hydrangeas and maroon daylilies.  These hydrangeas are in the full sun, folks!

This is a Blaze climbing rose in our front yard.  One of my favorites.  It just goes crazy in the full sun.

Remember my favorite white-blooming viburnum from Spring 2012 in Meridian?  Well, those white blooms turn into sweet little red berry thingies.  I wonder if the birds like these things…seems like they would.

Most of our summer was a smokey one, with all the wildfires around Idaho.  This is a view of a windfarm with a smoke blanket backdrop, seen from the freeway on the drive from Meridian to my folks in Twin Falls.

Hydrangea blooms turning from white to pink at summer’s end.  Beautiful.

Anyone home?  This praying mantis gave us girls quite the scare one morning.  Creeper wouldn’t move away from this garage door, either.  Jasmine kitty played with her for awhile, then we put her on the hydrangea out back.

I got a firepit from my husband and parents for my birthday.  A super easy kit from Lowe’s.  Love it.  Cheers!
