Summer scenes

I love that even when I feel like I don't have anything to write about, when I feel like I haven't made any "progress" on the house or the sewing projects or the flower garden, I can walk outside with my camera and see the progress of the season.

This week: loaded blueberry bushes. The birds (waxwings?) nesting in the honeysuckle have hatchlings. The currants are ripe; the birds are thrilled. Maybe next year they'll get made into jam, or dried for baking. Deer have found my garden, and are eating beets, beans, chard, and peas. And stripping the new growth off my apple trees. Friends providing a barrage of helpful deer-repellent tricks give me courage...

Great photos. I share the sentiment. Nature makes me feel like a more accomplished gardener than I may actually be.

It's a great feeling, isn't it?

I went blue berry pickin on Saturday! Made a dump cake that is delish! Hope you can fend off the deers.

Love dump cake! I've missed strawberry season, and am trying to figure out when I might possibly have the time to go berrying... or do my canning. Busy times!
