The air is fresh, and the sun has come out giving the world that special glow that only comes with a good scrubbing of a prolonged and gentle rain. Even the grasses have revived and are rising to the occasion!
Don’t you love days like these?
Well, maybe the neighbors dogwood will take a bit longer…
But don’t you just love that brand new tree house! I makes me wish to be a child again, how about you?

Umbels of Bronze Fennel
The cooling blue of Borage
~ Vegetables ~
Asparagus refreshed by the rain arises to catch the sun and store it away deep down underground, keeping it there in its roots for next spring.

We approach the new gate leading into the goose yard, and beyond are the herb and vegetable gardens. There stands Miss Becky, a weather tough form of Rudbeckia, who grew to a mammoth six feet tall! (I suspect her roots grew equally deep into the earth to sustain her.)
Turning to go another direction I pass the blackberry vines and discover…
a surprise pair of naked ladies where there were none before! I suspect they were kicked closer to the surface when Bob rototilled this section of the garden in early spring. I await their grand opening.

My how those boys have grown!
