They are the workhorse flower...deterring all of those bad bugs, looking matronly with their stiff petals, smelling strongly like clean floors.
But I like them...
This year they all looked so pretty to me...I think that I may just have a fever for their bold unembarrassed summer colors. Isn't it time for berries yet?
The chard gets more and more interesting...but isn't it time for it to be pulled?
Did you know there were hairs in the foxglove blossom?
Cabbage veins (the picture looks better horizontally BUT blogger likes this orientation!)
More chard trying to ingratiate itself...it saw me pull the bolted white chard the other day...this orange fellow wants to stay.
The magical upside-down tomato monstrosity is back and this year the boys have added peas on top...with the weather we've been having, I will be awash in pea pods in no time, but perhaps not tomatoes.
The color of this poppy always looks unreal against the green and the pink digitalis...like it almost breaks the camera when the computer tries to translate it in to MB.
But this is what we have this week in the garden, lots of rain, followed by clouds, wind, and sparse late afternoon sunny spots.
