About this time of year, there is a lull in my garden activities. It's summer! There are dozens of places and events to dash off to at any given moment! Who has time to garden, anyway?
So it was nice to spend a quiet evening watering and noticing all the small beauties that I'm missing out on as a result of all the dashing.
Poppies poking through nasturtium leaves.
Dried chive blossoms with little black seeds.
Sun shining through the last two sugar snap peas (which were eaten immediately after this picture was taken.)
A ladybug on my dill. (Thank goodness, too - this dill was infested with aphids.)
Bean shoots climbing up garlic scapes.
And the lovely red flowers of said ambitious bean.
