August Colors

We have been waiting all summer for the first bloom of our Douglas Aster.  Here it is.  The plant is taller than I am and elbowing its neighbors pretty hard for room.  The bees and hummingbirds love it.

We had our first Yellow Plum Tomatoes and Cherry Tomatoes from the garden this week. I wasn’t sure we’d have any after our wet July.

The Indian Blanket Flower lives up to its name with its vibrant colors and makes me think of corn mazes and Halloween.

We share the blueberries with the birds. We don’t mind. There’s always enough left for a batch of muffins when they’ve had their fill.
