endless gifts, summer

sweet summer . .

Every morning, while the coffee perks, Sophie, Jack and I take a little walk around the property.

It’s a perfect time for a  stroll.

Soft summer scents fill the air.

The birds are  trying to outdo each other in morning songs.

The ordinary looks magical in the early morning light …

Every day there is something new to discover …

This little flower is growing among my hostas – I think it may be a weed but isn’t it lovely?

I take a few moments to dig a few new potatoes, beets and carrots,

and gather a basket of green and yellow beans  and sugar snap peas.

Perfect for a summer barbeque.

I wish for you, my friends, sweet summer joy today.

  3. One man’s weed is another man’s flower!Beautiful gardens and that chard is gorgeous red!I think I want my kitchen walls to be that color red.Jody


  4. Surely that beautiful little purple flower is not a weed!?All of your photos are so sharp and clear….very beautiful. I especially like the bright green of the tomato, enhanced by the water drops.


  5. I do think your lovely purple flower is a weed. I have some of them myself but I let them stay just because they are so lovely. I agree with Tonia. Who cares if they are weeds? Come to think of it, who decides which ones are weeds?

    Kathie – Your garden looks lovely. We are fighting with a groundhog for our produce!!!! Sometimes we get PEI potatoes here and I want to tell whoever is near me that I used to live where these potatoes are from. Enjoy!!!!
