Every photograph a dream....I love the three sisters garden of sunflower and squash and beans.
Your gardens are lovely.

I tried the 3 last yr. but it didn't do good. Maybe next yr. somewhere else. Ethan sure knows how to pick them. She's pretty. A Tennessean?
Your gardens are looking great.

Marmee, wonderful, relaxing photos. All images of a lazy summer day. Interesting green zinnia, I'll look for that one next year.

marmee said...

i thought the zinnia should be a little more green but i really an enjoying them. when it's so hot there is nothing better than being lazy.
