This feature, originally known as Saturday Farmer's Market, was created by Heather at Capricious Reader, and then hosted by Chris at Stuff as Dreams are Made on.
The California Poppies are spreading out across the yard. As the Oxalis dies back (finally) the Poppies finally have more room to fill in.
My lovely little Violet is also going strong. It is getting bigger and continues to bloom. The hot, dry summers here are pretty hard on them, but since it is under the roses it has a fighting chance.
and more Roses!
See, the grass is full of stars,
Fallen in their brightness;
Hearts they have of shining gold,
Rays of shining whiteness.
Buttercups have honeyed hearts,
Bees they love the clover,
But I love the daisies’ dance
All the meadow over.
Blow, O blow, you happy winds,
Singing summer’s praises,
Up the field and down the field
A-dancing with the daisies.
