Pleasures of the Mid-Summer Garden 09 Wednesday Jul 2014 Posted by linnetmoss in Linnet Likes ≈ 19 Comments Tagsflowers, gardening, insects, photography, poetry The days of the garden are fleeting. Taste its pleasures while you can… …as the bee harvests the daisy. See patterns Absorb bursts of color Smell the tomato leaves Feel green textures Hear the sound of yucca bells Venture down a new path For we are creatures of a day.

Love those pink lilies 🙂
Thanks! Lily season is gorgeous around here.
I can imagine 🙂
How are the cats, by the way?
They’re great, thanks for asking! Winnie is still a total scaredy-cat, but deigns to approach the Long Suffering Husband if he comes bearing edible gifts.
Very pretty. Love the lushness of the last photo.
Thank you! I was holding my breath, trying to take it before the butterfly fluttered by! A moment of wonder.
What a gorgeous garden! What beautiful flowers!
Many thanks! I can’t take credit–it is all the work of the Long Suffering Husband : )
What a beautiful garden !
Artistic photographs of an elegantly cultivated garden: my hat is off to you on both counts.
Many thanks! I can’t take credit for the cultivation– it is all the handiwork of the Long-Suffering Husband.
Okay you’re making me jealous. I live in the desert. My garden is fried-up right now and I only got two tomatoes. The rest were eaten by hungry desert creatures.
Aw, too bad. Can you grow things at other times of year?
Thankfully, some stuff grows in the winter! Everything is backwards here, summer is dead season, winter is growing season. Although we have an occasional frost which sometimes kills off orange trees throughout the neighborhood. That’s always incredibly sad.
Ah yes, I grew up in Florida. It was terrible for the orange trees when we had the occasional frost. I still can’t go a day without my big glass of OJ 🙂
