In the Garden July 2008

Don't wear perfume in the garden - unless you want to be pollinated by bees. ~Anne Raver

This time of year it is such a joy to sit back and watch and smell the garden. I walk outside and can smell something everytime. Sometimes it's the milkweed, roses, chocolate flower, lavender, lilies, or even the cornfields near by after it rains, but mostly a combination of them all. Too bad we can't post the smells in our blogs.

Lovely photos. Ironically my post the day before this was about smells in the garden. I decided my garden needs more fragrance. What would you recommend?

Congratulations on your new granddaughter! Grandchildren are so precious; I know you are going to cherish her.
