This time of year my garden seems like my own enchanted kingdom.
I made the best decision ever when I planted lavender at the entrance. The bees don't mind when you brush past them.
Pole beans up and over the arbor. I'll pick the beans when they're just a quarter of an inch in diameter. They're planted in old piles of manure--the leaves are ten inches across.
The "black" hollyhocks are finally blooming. I didn't know what they'd look like. Gorgeous.
Everything's better with Sister, of course.
