We enjoyed a fun weekend with friends in Springfield, Missouri.
This is Branson, one of their Beagles.

I like the push button design of the nozzle on this gas can.

It's great that Flash caught the mouse ... but then she wanted to bring it inside!  It took some time to convince her that wasn't going to happen!

I followed the recipe for Ina Garten's Carrot Cake with Ginger Mascarpone Frosting, except I used a half cup of pecans instead of walnuts, and instead of a cup of raisins, I used a half cup of golden raisins and a half cup of dried apricots.  The crystallized ginger in the frosting was wonderful!

I'm probably late in discovering the Ben & Jerry's non-dairy dessert, but this flavor is really good!

They mowed most of the weeds along our property easement/greenbelt last week.  I was happy to see the neighborhood landscape crew out yesterday mowing and trimming.  And then this morning, this guy was spraying.  I'm hoping they will add our greenbelt area to their lawn care schedule.

Chaste Tree (Vitex agnus-castus)

Beautiful garden or patio tree shows terminal clusters of fragrant lilac blooms, backed by aromatic gray-green compound foliage. Broad and spreading, effective multi-trunk display. Train for use in a shrub border, or use as a small tree to accent the landscape. Deciduous.
