Bits of My Weekend: Volume 20

Well, no more complaints around here about lack of sun! No sir, won't be making that particular noise for some time, I think. There was some cloud cover/haze on Saturday morning that allowed for a nice long walk without burning up completely, but from Saturday noon on, it was all sun, all the time.

Can you see the growing garden through the shade? It's producing like crazy already, at least in the zucchini and summer squash departments. I didn't want to do too much of close-up--don't want to show off the weeds too much!

Here are my basil babies. The bigger plants went in as plants, the smaller ones came from seed and I thought they'd gotten frozen out from our cool spring, but when I weeded last week, voila! there they were. Yeah! I will ALWAYS take more basil. (And see the volunteer dill in among the basil? I have tons of that and didn't have to plant a single seed this year! Sweet.)

I dug up some reds for lunch on Saturday. They turned into some happy smashed buttery red potatoes with parsley.

And the summer squash! I fried up a few for lunch as well. Happy summer eating!

Do you see the rainbow in the sprinkler?

A view from the hammock.

Another view from the hammock. I love a cloudless sky!

Chief and I compared pedicures.

I enjoyed a little mango frozen yogurt al fresco.

Ruby guarding the tomatoes.

More sprinkling shots. Gotta keep cool.

And,  my favorites are still blooming.

Hope your weekend was filled with sunshine too!
