Fluffy summer clouds (bringing us loads of rain!)
Blue Flax: (Linum perenne) This perennial flower was discovered on the Lewis & Clark Expedition, and hence the species was named “lewisii”. Lovely blue flowers on 24” plants, beautiful and easy to grow. (seeds/description from http://www.rareseeds.com)
A pepper already! This one is a black Hungarian (mild to medium spicy)
We are growing two types of cucumber: Sikkam (a tan oblong variety) and Dragon’s egg (a white egg shaped type) and notice all the purslane growing wild around the cucumber plants. Purslane makes great ground cover and it is edible (lemony and crunchy!)
Marigolds, Loofah gourds, onions and love-in-a-mist flowers
These are storebought (planted last year) but there are many native varieties of coneflowers in the parks in our area.
Little onion seed heads
Love when the mimosa blossoms fall!
Makeshift garden gate for an area of the deer fence in need or repair.
Hey, where are you going with the garden gate?! haha
Mmm good stick
Yum! Spinach always seems to do so well in pots; very easy to harvest
Very vibrant coneflower
Love-in-a-mist seed pods
It’s Tongue-y! Baby named her. The male (who we haven’t seen lately is Tongue-y II) haha
Great climber! (and great camoflauge)
Found a good spot to nap
Spectating (and pedicure-ing!) at the ballpark!
Hope you all are having a nice summer (or winter for my southern hemisphere friends!) and have a great weekend!
