Breakfast... enjoyed shortly after this picture was taken. :)


In the cool morning light: hollyhock, cabbage, baptisia australis



Snake plant... so happy to spend its summer outdoors that it's trying to bloom


In the warm morning light: peppermint, amaranthus 'Hopi Red Dye,' miscanthus zebrinus, bronze fennel

Don't you just love amaranth? I have two "love lies bleeding', a kind of droopy dark pink amaranth. Such an interesting plant. I loved your color post too. It's sort of like evolving. I think you're getting comfortable in your own skin. I went through the same type of transformation at your age. It's funny to look back and see how much time I used to spend worrying what other people would think.

I love the red in the bottom picture.

Is this your first crop of strawberries for the season? I'm wondering how it works. I get mine in June and that's it for the year. I'm wondering if there's another variety I can find that produces fruit later....

meresy_g, I really do hope that I am becoming comfortable in my own skin... seems like it shouldn't be such a process somehow, though, you know? :) I planted the green version of LLB myself, but am not about to show those--they're all about 4in. tall yet, and were started at the same time!

Snappy, yours has flower buds, too? I wonder if mine is pot bound, then... I'll have to check. Have never had flowers on that before.

Melissa, these are a kind of everbearing strawberry. I don't get nearly as much at a time as you get with Junebearers, but I get a few strawberries here and there throughout the season. Maybe a dozen or so small ones at a time, but since it's just me indulging in them, that's fine. I probably should plant some June bearers, though, for jam.
