Hello everyone!
It is a very wet and rainy day, today. But, I could not resist some garden photos.
We started a veggie garden this year with radishes and lettuce. I LOVE the French Breakfast variety. They make a great radish sandwhich, but are also tasty, just plain with a sprinkling of sea salt. YUM. I also read that you can roast them. Double yum. Can't wait to try that.

Such beautiful colors.

We are eating LOTS of lettuce as well. There is nothing like a fresh salad picked right from your very own garden.

Spinach too!!

Chives are in full bloom! Love the shade of purple.

A beautiful pansy looking down on me---making me happy.

Knockout Roses are a favorite in my garden. They are virtually carefree and bloom all summer.

And last but not least, my very first Peony. On the verge of opening in all it's glory.

What is growing and blooming in your garden today?

Especially love the beautiful pics of the radishes against the white and green checked cloth. Dreamy!! I am just so proud of anyone who can garden. Right now I have 2 tomato plants whose leaves are turning yellow. I am in awe of you gardeners!!

What a lovely garden! Love your veggies! And flowers, too, of course. Unfortunately I don't have a green thumb. But every year I try to plant things for my kids, because they love "watering" and smelling the flowers.
This is what I have recently planted:
