A sun-warmed raspberry
retrieved from its hidden location tucked behind a leaf
eaten straight from the bush
staining the mouth 
Now this is summer.

How our garden grows...

How does our garden grow this year?
Rather slowly, what with all the rain. But we're busy growing a fine crop of grass.
And more interestingly, many other things.

The view from our back deck:
(can you see the green fuzz-that-will-be-lawn?)
We're growing almost a full gamut of vegetables, including potatoes, beets, carrots, two kinds of peas, three kinds of beans, dill, various annual flowers...
...and lettuce.
The front yard is more interesting. 
We've planted all kinds of vegetables, perennials and annuals all mixed together
(along with the previously mentioned green-fuzz-that-will-be-grass)
The bachelor buttons have taken off marvelously. I've never seen so many shades of blue, mauve, pink, purple etc.
And lastly, E's birthday tree, though it is very young indeed, looks to bear fruit this year.
