Flowers and Food

One of my favorite flowers are lilies. They are showing all their beautiful colors.

This is the new flowerbed Curtis and I made in the spring. This is my first try at rose bushes and I am very pleased that it is blooming. Next year, everything should be filled in more. I have been pouring the fertilizer and water to the bed so good things are happening.

Most of these flowers are volunteer.

Raspberries are one of my favorite fruits. They are so big ans sweet. Some are the size of loonies. This is the second year for some of them. Even the ones that were transplanted in the spring are producing a bit. The kids and I also picked 3 gallons of peas today. When they tell me they are hungry, I say head for the garden. I love this time of year!!
