No secret that I do not like this time of year. It is the ‘blowing shit up’ time of year in my mind, nothing to do with Americas Independence.
Lots of garden time, hiking time, and inside listening to music and cooking time.
Yesterday morning we were in the garden, and the light was near perfect. My winter squash patch is going to take over everything, its like an alien invasion right now, and it makes me SO EXCITED to think of our potential winter supply of delicious squashes!!!
But more than that, I love these plants, they hold secrets all their own, and are so interesting, and magical… I just tucked my camera under the big lily pad sized leaves and started to click, and this is what my camera found …
And in honor of the Georgia O’keeffe Exhibition at the Tate Modern (July 6-October 30), which apparently my flower garden had heard about, they decided to put on a hommage of sorts. And boy did they ever … I always feel like my garden, this time of year, is one sexy, earthy, supermodel. It is so easy to get lost for hours in the beauty of it all.
Our day ended with a gorgeous hike to Lava Lake, six miles round trip in the rain, sun, wind, sun, rain, and high mountain flora and fauna. It was perfect.
And then we all settled in for a special meal, great music, fans for white noise, and hoping for the blasting and bombing to stop.
From the earth, through me, to you, Nancy
