The small lavender-colored annual daisies next to the granite bench, are blooming profusely these days. I like the shadows of the daisies on the nasturtium leaves in this photograph.
A Lemon Cucumber is just about ready to be picked. I have one in the refrigerator, but I still haven't tasted it yet, lol. June says they're quite good, tasting pretty much like a regular cucumber, with just a slight lemon taste. I'll probably eat it today. They seem to grow to about the size of an apple. If I get many of them before we get our first frost, I think I'll make pickles out of them. I've never made pickles before but I've been looking through old recipes to see what I can find.
Seemingly floating in a sea of green, this orange Zinnia has been blooming for more than three weeks! It's nestled in between the six-foot Cosmos leaves to its right, and its fellow Zinnia leaves, almost five feet tall themselves, on the left. I'm not going to pick this one, I'm really curious as to just how long it will continue blooming.
