Resurrection lilies

Scarf SundayMy daughter Jessica had a successful summer being the web intern for the World Organization for Human Rights USA in Washington, D.C. She also worked in a bike shop.

This is the season for roses, resurrection lilies, yarrow, cactus and other heat-loving plants to bloom in my garden.

St. Andrew's Episcopal Church sent a hundred campers off to Camp Oskie (which for that week becomes Camp St. Andrew's) at the Lair of the Golden Bear, the University of California at Berkeley Alumni family camp in Pinecrest, California. On Scarf Sunday, everyone comes to church toshow off their new St. Andrew's Camp scarves, tell camp stories, and sing. This year's theme was Safari, so the altar was flanked by a life-sized cardboard tiger and lion. Leopard print was the fashion for the day.
