The weather has been beautiful around here. Not too hot - just the right amount of fog to cool us off. And, a couple of teeny miracle summer showers to nurture the garden.
The flowering quince is doing really well. I think that the key is lots of watering. Duh!
A far cry from last summer's pile of sticks:
This pic was taken in the midst of a really hot July 2006. The poor thing was doomed. Now, every time I visit the new plant, I revel in its vitality. I figure that if I can get it through the summer, it will have established itself well and give us some beautiful blooms in the Spring.
Aren't these sweet peas amazing?
Usually I have a lot of trouble with them - especially with powdery mildew. Again, it isn't as cold and foggy and I think that they are digging it!
Fiddleheads just make me smile.
So sincere & full of promise, they are.
Anticipation. These tomatoes would love a bit of a sun-kiss and some heat. Yum!
Echinacea in full bloom. I am amazed by this plant. Wow.
Weekend bounty. Lotsa chard and beanz!
In honor of our anniversary weekend...a wedding color bouquet. Red & Purple!
So we're off to celebrate a little with some beach, a little champagne and - most definitely - oysters!
I hope that you enjoy your weekend as much as we plan to! XO
