some of the things I love about summer:

Rose of Sharon
this flower is on my neighbor's tree, but it looks right over the fence and into my backyard.
Lucky me!

I actually can't eat garden tomatoes anymore because they really hurt
my mouth, but my husband likes them and I like to grow them and we have
never actually had a problem getting rid of any that may be left over.


Pepper flower
our good friend takes peppers, cuts them in half, removes the seeds,
fills the halves with cream cheese, then grills them.
It's one of my favorite summertime treats!

Eggplant flower
I've been growing eggplant for the last few years, one reason is that
the flowers are so beautiful (the other is that my husband happens
to really like eggplant parmesan).

I can hardly believe that this huge plant once was a few tiny
leaves in a cup that my daughter brought home from school
at the end of the year. It's going to be coleslaw this weekend!


Window box
seeing bright flowers whenever I look out my window always
brightens my mood, no matter what kind of day I'm having

I bet your daughter is excited about the cabbage. The whole garden is looking great.
