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.


  1. Ahh, the view, oh yes! And the garden is gorgeous, too, Mary. I just posted a silly poem on my blog about the kind of garden I think I can grow now. Elevated, and not just a foot or two. We may not be 20-somethings any more but I'm grateful we can be happy as ourselves, without yearning for eternal youth.
    Luv, K

  2. Oh God, You speak the truth. and I am in agreement.

  3. beautiful flowers, and a beautiful woman....very impressed with the veg garden !
