Summer is going full swing with the heat and humidity here. Great weather for tomatoes and peppers. We've been enjoying Swiss Chard and Kale now that the lettuce and peas are done. The blackberries are starting to ripen and we've enjoyed some blueberries but the Catbirds did too...

I am always amazed at how flowers at dusk almost seem to glow on their own and many seem to exude their frangrance at twilight too. Pictured here are geranium and cosmo flowers.

These lovely orchids are back for an encore after last winter. They are white with just a touch of lavender

The veggie department outside in the box is moving right along. We have had cucumber, chard, onion, herb and cherry tomato salads two or three times a week now.
