Chamomile, rooting sweet potatoes, shirley poppy

I've spent all week writing and editing so that I could turn in the first complete draft of my book yesterday.  Words may be a bit scanty on the blog over the next few days as the well refills.

For now, enjoy a visual journey through our garden.  Self-seeded chamomile and poppies are blooming, the sweet potatoes are rooting, the worms are slithering, and the peaches are swelling.

Red worms, peaches

Oh, poppies! I wish I had a field to grow poppies! So lovely.

You'd be proud: Joy loves worms. I think she carried one around yesterday for about 5 minutes before I finally insisted that she put the poor thing back in the dirt.

A child after my own heart! I knew that kid had potential. :-)
