A Hint Of Summer

Summer is sneaking up on us quickly! I got a reminder of this in the form of a sudden explosion of bright colored blooms around the house. I’m fighting a bit of a summer cold, but I managed to snap a few pictures yesterday before taking myself and a cup of tea to bed.

The gardenias are already starting to wilt a bit and no longer make for the loveliest of photos, but the air in the garden is thick with their fragrance.

We have also had an explosion of mint which I can’t really smell right now, but I know I normally like too.

The vegetable growing outside the kitchen are starting to mature as well. We’ve already picked some of the radishes with others to follow soon. The yellow crookneck squash, zucchini, tomato, and some of the eggplant varieties are all blooming. Some of them even have small veggies on them already.

Some of the beans have reached the tops of their poles as well now.

I hope it’s a fruitful summer. It’s certainly looking like it will be.
