I am always surprised at how quickly the garden changes from the blues and violets and vivid greens of spring to the hot colors of summer. We’ve tended a garden now for fifteen years so I know it’s going to happen sooner rather than later. And then suddenly we have day lilies and California poppies and coreopsis, but still I miss those cool bloomers. Summer heat though, brings tomatoes, and basil and cheerful zinnias.
Volunteer cherry tomato plant left to do its own thing.
Sage amongst the irises.
Basil, basil, basil and more basil. Four plants from one pot. You know how I feel about buying basil in December!
Neighbor’s peach trees looking good this year.
And a bit of color amidst the green. So pretty.
