Want a "Quickie" ? Today 7.27.16

(All “Quickies” are photos taken and posted the same day)
These photos were taken today in the Gardens at Waters East. - - 7.27.16

Old ship ribs from the 1800s - found on the beach.

These are the days for getting-in on lots of “Quickies”.  Everyone likes a quickie.  July brings all of us here on the shores of Lake Michigan the perfect elements – the warm breezes, the high sun, a little rain every couple of days.  These are the days to get out of the house for a quickie here and there.  There are so many blooms “happening” everyday this month, timing is fantastic for a quickie today.
