our summer bounty

this is my entry for the
gardening gone wild photo contest.
they are asking for an abundant harvest photo.....we had a
wonderful abundance of these delicious melons and
berries....something we enjoyed all summer long.

ps...don't miss the last post before this about our f/farmer's market.
i included a lot of links you can shop from.

mmmm... now that's a PICTURE! Love the combination of colors and taste. I haven't checked out GGW this month ... will head over to see what's up.

i looked back at all the harvest photos and none stood out until i saw this one. well a few but this one is so juicy and makes you want to take a bite, right? we will see.
i am so sure you have some great photos for this category because i have seen them. good luck when/if you enter.

Melon balls? What does the plant look like I wonder.
I can still see your picture for last months's contest, with that gorgeous background. And I adored the photo you took of your dancing daughter. What quality.

Lola said...

Boy, now that pic will get your juices flowing & I haven't had breakfast yet.
It's sure to be a winner Marmee.

Roses and Lilacs said...

That looks wonderful. Haven't had breakfast yet and that would be perfect.

Hi Marmee.......the combination of colour and presentation is wonderful.....the melon and berries look truly scrumptious.........I ate lots of melon in Florida for breakfast......yummy

marmee said...

thanks...i just love the combo of these two together in taste and colour.
happy autumn.

marmee said...


good day, you are kind to say compliment my photos like that. it is wonderful to capture a child's joy because they give it so readily...abbey is definitely my muse.
i have photos of the melon on the vine if you want to see them. give me your email and i will send you a few.
hope you do well in the contest.
happy autumn.

marmee said...


everytime i look at that picture it makes me really want some...hopefully everyone will feel inspired...isn't that what photography is all about.
happy autumn.

marmee said...


i feel the same way when i see that photo...too bad the garden is only giving a few now. they were so good and spoiled me for getting them anywhere else.
happy autumn.

marmee said...


melon is just a whole goodness fruit that makes you feel so good after eating. this photo always makes me want some.
i am so glad you were able to get some good ones while stateside.
yummy is right!
happy autumn.

What a striking color combination. I want to reach in and grab a bite.

I'm sure glad I'm not judging this contest - the entries are simply gorgeous and we're only a day or so in.

Best of luck!
