The cone flowers responded favorably to our recent deluge of rain.
They are blooming profusely, much to the delight of the bees and butterflies.
It felt so good to get reacquainted with my garden this morning.
Most everything has grown by leaps and bounds.
The tomato plants are at least 8 feet tall and . . .
loaded with promising tomatoes.
I have picked a few handfuls of cherry tomatoes already. No pictures though as I've already eaten them. There's just something about that first tomato of the season... still warm from the summer sun... yum!
The basil is coming along nicely.
Can't wait for that first batch of pesto.
Another summery taste that I love.
There are all kinds of ways to begin the day.
My current favorite is a walk through the garden watching as the graceful butterflies glide in and amongst the flowers. All the cares of the world just melt away... even if only for a short time.
What's your favorite way to begin the day?
