This morning on the walk with the ladies, I was pleased to find that my legs had returned to their usual springiness after more than a week of recovery from my Church Mountain efforts. And halfway around Lake Padden, I saw this heron who does seem to be posing prettily for me. Or maybe he was fishing, but still I was happy to say hello to him (her?).
Our cornfield today
Then I went out to the garden to pull some weeds before it gets too hot, and I see that our corn has tasseled and has some ears beginning to form. Our garden is a veritable cornucopia of goodies right now: I am harvesting beans, zucchini, Sun Gold tomatoes (the little cherry type ones), and cucumbers. My friend John will bring me a bunch of kale from his garden tomorrow, so we are in vegetable abundance here at the end of July.
Aww, so cute!
After I left some zucchini on my neighbor's porch, she sent me this image in text, and it's so adorable I have to share it with you. None of the squash I left her were crookneck, but after seeing this, I just might have to grow some next year!
