My Garden Updates - Summer by the Pond




















 Taking advantage of this pleasantly cool weather!

We decided to have a simple lunch of homemade burgers, oven roasted corn-on-the-cob
and refreshing watermelon salad as dessert at our little picnic area by the pond.
Food, somehow, tastes a lot nicer al fresco!
Life couldn't get any better!

My Garden Updates - Herbaceous Perennial Border



"The spring rains woke the dormant tillers, 
and bright green shoots sprang from the moist earth 
and rose like sleepers stretching after a long nap. 
As spring gave way to summer, the bright green stalks darkened, 
became tan, turned golden brown. 
The days grew long and hot. 
Thick towers of swirling black clouds brought rain, 
and the brown stems glistened in the perpetual twilight that dwelled beneath the canopy. 
The wheat rose and the ripening heads bent in the prairie wind, 
a rippling curtain, an endless, undulating sea that stretched to the horizon." 

―Rick Yancey, The Infinite Sea
