In upstate NY, we've been experiencing a string
of what I'd call perfect summer days. Today, I'm paying
homage to my flourishing gardens because they continue
to grow and flower despite my severe lack of attention.
French Green Beans well on their way, and
I love these soft, warm yellow-greens.
Nice colors for a summery quilt...add a little
pink & blue and we're in business!
Since my dear friend Lori showed me her Patty Pan squash
last year, I've wanted to grow them too. She picks them when
they're a little bigger than the one shown above,
but still fairly small, because of how tender they are.
Just a few more days and this one's going in a stir fry!
A change of scene, my front walk in desperate
need of my TLC. While it's always a work in progress,
it's soul-satisfying work. The changing colors and textures
bring me great joy, and this garden is a peaceful retreat
on our already quiet street.
Alright, now I'm motivated to prune, water, divide and conquer!
