Pretty Pictures

I haven’t been doing much experimenting with new recipes, mostly baking the tried and true. Hoping that cooler weather will come through soon and usher in some inspiration to try Fall themed goodies.

Over the weekend I was sorting through pictures from the spring and summer and there are some that did not get posted, which should have. I think that the post-long weekend funk is a great reason to have some pretty pictures to look at.

It was a great year for larkspur, until the rain stayed away too long.

The larkspur and lavender together were awesome!

Lack of rain impacted the white and pink echinacea as well, beautiful in the early part of the summer.

Beautiful choral bells this year.

The former strawberry tower, which stunk as a strawberry tower, came into its own as a flower tower this year.

Bergamot/bee balm brought in the hummingbirds.

And the black eyed susans were the only color around during the worst of the summer drought.

I will leave it at that for now. There are more. I have really been enjoying taking pictures of food and flowers and goodies and veggies, etc. Thank you for letting me share them with you.
