Sunny green bouquet

One of my favorite aspects of my vegetable garden has been all the cut flowers I have added over the years. It has been nice to always have fresh flowers in the house when they are in bloom and they add some much color and beauty to the garden itself.

Here I have a bouquet of sunflowers, green zinnias, and dill.

Herb collectors

These pictures are precious to me. 
These pictures are moments I hope I never forget--memories of sweet children collecting and sorting herbs for their play.

These girls have been collecting herbs quite a lot this summer--they collect them to build dresses for fairies, to be medicine cats (Hello Warrior Cat books) and heal their clan, to take to "market" to sell, to make witches brew...

We have spent many a sweet morning out in the garden harvesting, weeding, frolicing about--letting our imaginations run wild and hearts fill with nature.
