Celebrating Independence Day in the garden!!

Our Summer Garden is coming along quite well. Luckily, we don't have the gloom that we had last summer and our tomatoes and pumpkins are flourishing without mildew.

Front triangular bed is happily filled with peppers, tomatoes and basil.

Pumpkins and Lebanese Squash are starting to climb the trellis.

Tomato bed into more fruit, herbs and flowers. My deep pink yarrow is dipping down into the path, filled with flowers. Everything is just so happy growing together.

Another happy tomato surrounded by tons of flowers, herbs and fruit.

Cucumbers are growing up, up, up! Flowers and fruit are starting to show everywhere.
