The past few weeks have been insanely busy (which included a week with Alain away). Not all of the past few weeks has been happiness, chilled white wine and roses but I don't feel like typing about that today. Instead, I'll share some of my favorite photos I've taken when I was inspired to pick up my camera.....
Do you remember the SuperMoon? Wow, it was bright and insanely beautiful.
We made our very first trip to Overlook Park at the Charlotte Airport. That was kind of fun!
While my parents were here visiting, I also invited my cousin and her boyfriend over for dinner. Since Alain was gone, I actually cooked.
I'd checked out Meatless, the vegetarian cookbook from Martha Stewart and decided to try out a few recipes. I had tons of zucchini and eggplant from the garden so my choices included those.
The dishes just looked pretty and I wanted to take some photos to prove that I really do cook sometimes!
My Bee Balm plant is such a show-off. I can't stop taking pictures of it!!!
My homegrown cucumbers always make me happy!
This year I bought a flower plant called WhirlyBird. I love the flowers but, even more so, I love the leaves.
We took this photo to show just how large our zucchini leaves are! Massive. We call them elephant ears!
One night Alain and Sophie played Quirkle. While it's a fun game, I just really love the game tiles!
The first blueberries from my garden. One of my happiest gardening moments, for sure!
Alain made stuffed peppers/zucchini one night for dinner. Who wouldn't be inspired to take a photo with all of these gorgeous colors???
More "Whirly" flowers.
These Marigolds are HUGE!
Sungold Tomatoes. One of my favorite things to grow, for sure!
Turn baby, turn!!!
I took this one a recent nature walk. Mother Nature's perseverance is always an inspiration to me!
One day's harvest. There is nothing quite like summer gardening, is there?
