Start of Summer

I'm out of school for the summer!
 I've just been resting up, doing a little housework, and working in the yard and garden.
 Everything has really taken off. 
Isn't this curious that there is only one poppy in the middle of the bright yellow ones?
 The Sitka rose is almost finished blooming for the season. We enjoyed its light sweet scent.
 Greg has been wrangling the raspberry bushes for weeks. They grew so tall and sent runners out everywhere.
 The mountain ash tree's flowers are gorgeous!

 Beautiful iris in the back borders.

 We are already eating radishes and leaf lettuces that we grew in the raised beds.

 The wonderful leaf lettuces!
I leave for holiday in Tennessee to do some traveling with my Mom and visit friends and family. Hopefully by the time I return, some of the other plants will be ready to harvest.
