I always enjoy your posts so much!!

That is a great idea to use the corn stalks as a trellis.

I have a 5 petal pink blossom
under Tickled Pink to try and
id. It has a yellow center.

I cooked a bull thistle bud
just to see if it taste like
artichokes. There wasn't much
of nothing inside to eat, Just
a lot of fluff. So I didn't
taste it, but it smelled like
an articoke. Have you had them
before? I found a blog that is
in drafts at the moment that
posted about eating thistle
stalks. I'll take it out of
draft as soon as I get a photo
for it.

God Bless You and Yours!!!

PS. The water from boiling
that Bull Thistle turned a
nice bright green. I wonder
if one could drink it. Do
you know?

Beautiful garden and harvest. I haven't seen any bees around here... just mosquitos. No garden this year. I will get to enjoy your garden!

Your garden is just flourishing! And the harvest appears to be quite abundant. Enjoy! :0)

Lovely, Lovely, as always JoyceAnn! I just came in from watering everything...got a bit of Swiss Chard picked and a few more beans. My cukes are still a no go. It is just too hot to be out trying to do anything. Fortunately we had a bit of reprieve over night and it cooled down enough for me to go out early this morning and give everything a good water. Good news is I have another beautiful fuschia pink lily in bloom...it is just gorgeous!
So that is my blessing for today...crops and flowers and a nod from God. :)
Enjoy your day Dear One!
xoxo

Lovely garden - I've been enjoying the birds and the sunshine - we are finally done with every other day of rain - little boys playing in the yard and soft breezes. Thanks for the wonderful post.
