This summer is flying (has flown?) by. I can't believe it's Labor Day. Things happening in the garden include...
A woodpecker on the sunflower out front! (Sorry this photo isn't so great, I stood out on the porch in my towel after getting out of the shower to try and get a shot, so was in a bit of a rush!)
The pear trees are full of pears, and we have started picking - yum!
The sunflowers are still doing really great!
The peppermint rose is blooming again.
We learned a few years ago how absolutely beautiful cotton flowers are, so each year we grow a few - not only because it's kind of neat to pick cotton in our backyard, but for the flowers as well.
And, we had the most delicious, colorful, local dinner the other night. Everything is local, even the sausage is from the northeast. Green beans, cremini mushrooms, purple potatoes, red and green peppes, onions, tomatoes...yum!
