The main reason I love being in Boise, is the view of my backyard from the family room, kitchen and sun room. It's like staring at an aquarium to me, in the calm feeling it gives me.
There are a lot of Hostas. I want to plant more of these giant ones in the shade beneath the pine trees. This one seems quite happy here.
Tiger Lilies I had forgotten were there. Discovered after Hubby cleaned and thinned out a lot of overgrowth.
One day husband, sister and I took a day trip to Shoshone Falls, a two hour drive from Boise. It was a nice drive, and the falls were beautiful, even though they were running quite low as it is late in the season. The best time to go this year has been in April. We still enjoyed it and got a few good photos. We also got to see some base jumpers at the Perrine Bridge that spans the Snake River.
