On Wednesdays, two ladies work with most of the kids by doing a social skills class. I am the designated aide for that class, and it's rather fun. My oak-leaved hydrangeas are beginning to bloom as are the orange daylilies. The yard changes from the blues and purples of spring to the orange and white explosion of early summer. My artist friend who used to live across the street in the now treeless yard, used to love my yard this time of year. She did a wonderful painting of magnolia blossoms. The two year old next door threw the ball for Bingo as I was shoving the old man lawnmower ineffectively through the backyard hay. She kept saying, "Again! Again!" like the Telletubbies. It's fun to watch Bingo dash through the yard jungle to find a lost ball.
