The Garden, the Sky and the Sea

I love this time of year in the garden...

Lilies are blooming everywhere in the garden.
Over the years on D's birthday he had
received lilies as gifts.
They catch my eye and I have to pause
and take in their beautiful colors and shapes
every time I walk in the yard.
They nearly take my breath away.

Tonight we took a little walk on the beach and
were fascinated by the sky.

It continued to amaze me as the sun set...

Catching Up

It's been a hot humid summer here in southern Maine.
This weather slows me down!

The gardens are flourishing though they could use
some rain.

There's a chance of a thunderstorm
later today.

 D planted peas last month that the
baby woodchucks immediately ate.
D thought that was the end of the peas
 and was quite upset.
What a surprise to see them flourishing.
Well, by eating the tops the woodchucks had
actually made them bush out.
Unfortunately there are 3 different
varieties that have all tangled.
It is difficult to pick them and 
figure out what they are!
A learning experience! 

The leek flowers are very beautiful!

We try to walk in the evening when it is cooler.

There have been some unusual sunsets!

Hope you are having a good summer and the
weather isn't too oppressive.
