The June Garden

I shot a few photos out in the garden for you.
Some things are coming on but it's still pretty quiet.

It's almost time to harvest blueberries.
The plants are finally big; taller than I am and loaded this year.

Broccoli is being eaten at nearly every meal.

It's ginger and garlic stir fry tonight with rice.

Knee high corn.

Dahlias. John's been planting big pots of flowers. 
I'll save those for another post.

Taters and little daisies along the path.

Favas. Mmm.
With onion and olive oil.

And kale.

The lettuces are going to seed; the weather finally turned summery.

Loosestrife. (oops, it's Veronica!) I love this flower.

And of course calendulas. You only need to plant them once.

An overview showing the supports and a sliver of sunset.

And the awesome gardener with his prizes.

I've been spending long hours in the studio.

Wine 19.5x25 on paper

Yellow Bicycle 24x24 on wood panel

Summer Rain 24x24 on wood panel

I can see great progress since starting to paint abstracts four years ago.

The best part is that I have more successes than failures now.

That's all the news for now, folks. Hope your summer (or winter for those down under) is going well.
Back to the studio now for me!
