another one over….

Bye bye weekend, you really were great! We high tailed it up the Taconic back to the wee house, back to silence, back to lightening storms, back to dry heat, back to an overgrown garden, back to blue skies, back to barbeques… yip just back.

not sure what this is but its big, bold and beautiful

yip not sure what this is either but it’s sprouting out of a ginormous plant, and these shoots are about six feet tall!

new baby hydrangea plant…

bee balm, keeping the hummingbirds active

huge healthy tomato plants… finally thick stems, pungent smell, lots of flowers… I can barely contain myself!

shell peas, a tangled mess, but producing non the less…

how country! shelling peas at the picnic table…. I sauteed these for dinner in a little butter, water, salt and mint. I also made a batch of zucchini bread from far too many zucchini laying around, recipe here.

I added chocolate and nuts. Yum. How was your weekend?

    The yellow flowering plant is a daylily. You aren’t able to kill those. They love hot, hot climates, too, like NC~ The second tall lavender flower is from the hosta plant. Your garden surely is productive this summer. It’s from all that rain you had over the past week. It’s truly a blessing! Did you happen to see the converted Air Stream on Design Sponge last Friday when they do the Before/After segments? I immediately thought of y’all! Have a great week. Maybe the blueberry patch is open in Grand Gorge!

    my grandmother had those tall lavender colored flowers at her bungalo in pine plains. I have no idea what they are called, but before they open, my brother and I used to pop the flower buds…they made a fantastic popping sound.
    not that that information helps you one bit.

    ash the memories!
