As beautiful as she was, there was the thought that she seemed posed and it occurred to me that this was a session between artist and model.  And we are to believe that this occurred naturally?  What common sense would preclude that this occurred in nature? Cooling off on a hot day? Painter excluded, we are left with the specter of a lady cooling her tits and nothing else?

Please know that we are not without pity for her plight, whatever it was.

Sweet Summer, 1912, John William Waterhouse

My garden begins producing.

The Cleome bloom in the evening cool.

The squash and green beans grow.

Lately I have been busy putting in my garden, a task which requires me to work a little, rest a little, and take twice as much time as I did in my twenties.

Here we have yellow squash and string beans.

This year I added container strawberries and everbearing strawberries to my June bearing strawberries.

Container strawberries need less space and send our fewer new runner plants.

They are firm and yummy.

The cuttings I took from CBW's beautiful bush are blooming now.

There are flowers in pots too.
Tomatoes, peppers, basil, cilantro, and cucumbers.

Roses bloom...

The view is fantastic...

Basically I am a happy woman.
