THIS WEEKENDS' FLOWERS

It's been really cool and cloudy today. It's usually kind of cool through June around here but it's been cooler than usual. No rain, but cloudy and cool. Never gonna get any ripe tomatoes this way. And you can only eat so many batches of fried green tomatoes.

Barrel planter with a couple of petunias and a little daisy.

And a closer shot. The purples and yellows look really nice together.

And two of the lavenders we still have in front. These are a good scale for the space we have. And the bumblebees really love them.

The little pink flowers in the corner are the landscape strawberries. We've even put out some regular berries here and there for ground cover and the odd berry. We've gotten a couple of small batches already. Considering the cost of fresh berries it's nice to have a few of our own. They're kind of homely but they taste really good.

The basket of million bells on the front porch. I think they're really pretty too. The shade is kind of unusual.
