What’s in Bloom – July 21, 2020

Yes, more lilies.

Here is the latest from my wife’s various gardens.

These are absolutely tiny.
This is a different view of our vegetable garden. We had some green beans from here the other night.
We also have this kitchen garden. We’ve been getting lettuce for salads lately.
And we have a healthy crop of wild turkeys that come by to eat from our berry bushes.

    Love seeing all the flowers! My phlox should be blooming anytime now.
    Your veggie garden is looking fabulous! How fun to harvest green beans for dinner.
    Is it Turkey Tuesday? ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
    Have a wonderful day Mr. Chris!

    Love the shot of the tiny lavender (pink?) flowers. The bokeh is nice.
    My daughter and her family are not happy with some wild turkeys in their neighborhood that ate up their garden. It’s only fair that they harvest a turkey or two in its place, no? >grin<

    Hi Chris! Your garden is filling in nicely. Amazing how quickly it seems to be growing! Your wife knows what sheโ€™s doing. I love the picture of the turkey! Nice catch! Kind of him to pose perfectly for you too. Take good care friend!

      Thank you, Sandra. I think I’ve taken over a hundred photos of turkeys the past few years and that one may be the best. Most times they blend in too well. Have a great day.

    I love your garden! I spotted some Chinese greens we call Chye Sim here. That turkey is what I see as Thanksgiving dinner soon haha! I am horrible to think like that, but hey a turkey is a turkey ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Beautiful set of images; the last is an unusual hybrid; I particularly like the first image of the lily; I have shared with all appropriate attribution credited and link to your original post; scheduled for Sunday. Best Regards.
