The Lushness Of It All

It's not even officially summer and already I feel overwhelmed by the lushness of the season.

This is the east side of our house where the landscape is allowed to go natural and sometimes it feels like it might grab me as I pass through.

Jack in the pulpit, a wildflower and a survivor.

A view of the front yard. This lightly shaded area has a more tranquil feel to it than the east side jungle.

Meet some of the happy faces in my garden, violas.

Took some time to sit on the porch swing over the weekend and this Comma butterfly landed on the landscape stone only a few feet from me. So many butterflies already this year.

I don't blog often, but continue to garden and take photos like a madwoman. I've planted 29 containers with flowers and vegetables. Most likely there will be more.

Wishing all of my blogger friends a successful growing season.
