July in the Garden

Summer love...

This is a photo intensive post, showing off the best bits of the flora here at the cottage. I am coming to realize that the pictures I most enjoy taking, are of the garden. So, breathe deep and stroll through the fruit and flowers.




...and some of the harvest.
Shallots and garlic hanging in the larder.
Baby new potatoes of all sorts.

Great pictures, nature always gives the best subjects. Oh, and I love that cool chick in your new banner!

Mmmm, now I'm hungry. Is that Fran in the banner? Terrific picture, my creative friend!

Nancy in Atlanta (for about 3 more weeks, then it's off to Iowa with Diane!)

Mom L,
Thanks and yes, that is Fran- she's a big girl now.

You must be excited for your move, I hope it all goes well.
