GBBD July 2008

The best thing in my garden... The Sweet Granddaughter (and shastas)
Eggplant

Origanum laevigatum "Herrenhausen"
Lemon Verbena

Four O'Clocks


Despite the heat of last week there are still blooms to be found in Davis. Many herbs and vegetables are happy and didn't mind the heat at all...they thrive on it resulting in much of the farm land here being planted in tomatoes and other heat lovers. Trying to keep up with the gardening at the peak growing season, begin the year's canning by putting up jam, as well as visiting with family coming into town and continuing to care for the day care children has resulted in a last minute GBBD post...hopefully to be completed before my son shows up to straighten out an internet hook-up glitch!

That first picture is so full of cute-ness! I think she is definitely going to be a gardener!

You seem to always have one of the longest list of blooms. Where you are must be perfect for flowers, in spite of the heat and smoke from the fires. Thanks for joining in for bloom day.

Leslie, your granddaughter is one sweet little blossom! My daughter's best friend will be here in 10 days with her 2 year old, who is my unofficial granddaughter. I'm sure I'll be sharing pictures with y'all then!

That's one little girl who'll probably grow up to be a gardener. I love how you captured her wonder at the flower.

Your lemon verbena flowers! Wow... maybe it's just not warm enough here for ours to do so. But I love the lemon-candy scent of the leaves anyway.

DGD is definitely the prettiest flower in your garden, though, of course. And it's cute that she's already enjoying grandma's daisies.
