"Give me odorous at sunrise a garden of beautiful flowers where I can walk undisturbed."
I am so pleased with my garden! I have mostly left it alone, and it is doing wonderfully well. Sure, there are lots of weeds and grasses, but they don't bother me. In fact, I think they add a fullness of green, and help to sop up all the rain we've been having.
The sunflowers recently opened and are absolutely beautiful. I will definitely be sowing these next year again. The great thing is that, because they are from organic seed, I can gather, dry, and save them for next spring.
I loved seeing these tiny bees, delighting in the dusty pollen of a pink poppy. It's a wonderful feeling to know that the flowers I planted are feeding these hard workers.
And look, the beginning of a pumpkin! So round, plump and golden, covered in rain drops. My favorite plant of all.
