Yesterday, I took a spin around the yard, camera in hand.  I love to see what's blooming, who's visiting the flowers, and what edibles are ripening.

Orange double-flowered day lilies have begun blooming.

Pink lemonade blueberries are getting riper.

I love the combination of blue nigella next to yellow moonbean coreopsis.

Purple "green beans" are becoming larger, nearly ready to pick.  When cooked, the purple beans turn green.

Bees were delighting in the deliciousness of flower nectar.

Black raspberries have been ripening and must be picked before the birds find them.

an experiment this year--growing cucumbers in a pot on my deck.  Already baby fruits are forming!  This one is about the size of a little finger.

I love this color combination--so vibrant and summery!  chartreuse potato vine and bright pink brachyscome

Alphabe-Thursday, hosted by Ms Jenny, is so much fun!  This week our letter is  "G." Come visit others' submissions HERE and join in the fun!  

Thank you, Ms Jenny, for hostessing another round!
