My lilies were the most beautiful that they have been in YEARS. Now, it is too hot, and they are done. Kind of sad. :( They are the flowers that we tend to see the most, since the line some of the back areas of my house, where we park (as compared to the flowers that are in front, which we saw more of this spring than normal, as we walked around our neighborhood during the #quarantimes almost every day.)

You are right......


It is sooooo hot here in NC. We’re back down with DD. She and SIL bought their first house. Southern Pines. The builder put in foundation plantings and sod so they don’t have to do anything. They have ideas though and so do I (since I’m a landscape designer). But I will defer to them as though they were clients. DD is focused on non toxic plants since they have an 11mo and she’s concerned someone will drag in a poisonous leaf. That means much of the things the builder planted need to be relocated. It’s the first time I’ve had this as the primary requirement from a client. I’ve been doing some research and am pleasantly surprised to find that early Americans used Birch trees as a food source. I was suggesting they consider a river birch for shade. There’s a mature one down the street so it’s easy to give her a mental picture.

Are those cucumbers on the left?
The cucumbers are on the left next to the pepper in the tray with the strings beans (there are a variety of these/we have two types planted). The long ones on the right are what we call "cucuzza". A form of a squash. I call it the baseball bat sometimes :D.

There are a ton of different ways to make it. You can also cook some of the leaves - .We stuffed it with ground turkey (can use ground beef/chicken ground or meatloaf mix).

Today's haul -- I've already texted a neighbor to come save me from the green beans since I already have several days worth in the fridge.

Just had a freshly picked “straight from the garden“ salad for dinner!

Lots of curly leafed lettuce leaves, chopped cucumber, several mini bell peppers ripened to yellow, a tomato plus 2 figs.
Our figs look to be several weeks away yet -- although the hideous green scarab beetles have already been checking the tree out.

Our figs usually are ready for picking end of month/September. All at once and then we have a ton. We are going to try to freeze a few this year.

These are actually pictures from our Front Yard. They show part of Patti's Sunset Garden and 3 Level Fountain. The Birds including Hummingbirds love the flowers and Fountain. When we moved in 10 years ago this area was nothing but hard clay and a single Narrow Leaf Ash Tree that was planted too deep and was not growing. We removed it. The large object on the bottom level of the Fountain is Coral brought back from Hawaii. Whenever Racoons or Possums visit the Fountain at night they tend to knock it into the Fountain.
