It certainly is...really love Coreopsis because they just bloom there little stems off for the longest time. Gosh evert went off to College and dint have much time for here anymore. The time I was able to meet him in Finland he was 17 and now he's 24. I should try and meet him for coffee this Summer.

Do you go every year to Finland, Kin? Your so lucky to have "family " there! I guess I asked in the right forum about Evert. Is he still so into plants? Say HELLO to him from all of us on DG! Tell him we are all still enjoying his photos. I am finally off to bed. I have so much to do tomorrow. I need to grab my sweet kitty who is sound asleep in front of me and get off this computer

Here is a view from the dock we jump off after sauna! Hope Evert checks in sometime, would love to know how he is doing.
