Finally getting to enjoy strawberries that I planted THREE summers ago. (I probably wouldn’t have done strawberries if I had known they take that long to produce…)
My wish was to have enough to make a batch of freezer jam and in a couple more weeks, I’m pretty sure that’s going to happen!
Oh boy, do I love these Columbine! Those little spikey, pointy bits remind me of the wild honeysuckle that use to grow all over the woods that I use to play in when I was a little girl in Georgia.
And this blue Columbine? Oh my – well first of all it’s my favorite color, but it reminds me of many, many fun trips to the Rocky Mountains. All those memories flood back every time I look at this strong, thriving flower! (I’ve always heard that Columbine are fickle and fragile and hard to keep alive, but I do NOTHING special to mine and they’re growing like crazy… during years that they aren’t pummeled by hail.)
Just a beautiful, beautiful thing to look at!
The tomatoes and herbs aren’t doing so great yet, but I’m not going to complain too loudly when there’s so much that IS doing great!
