Summer Faves

I love strolling through the yard each day to see what is blooming. With the heat the blossoms of June are long gone but day lilies are still at it.

I love the lushness of the yard and how cool it makes it feel.

I love the morning sun streaming through the windows.

I love to watch the chickens scratch and peck in the garden.

I love this sight the most. My little bunny eating a carrot she grew in the garden.


  1. She is so cute! I bet she is proud of herself.
    I just can't eat carrots that haven't been peeled.
    Our flowers and grass are long gone here with the drought in the Midwest. Glad I can look at yours. pam

  2. You are truly blessed! You have a beautiful little gardener there. Great pictures too!

  3. I was sad that most of my blooms are gone, too - the heat has been amazing for Virginia this year. The only thing left are the Vinca. Even the crape myrtle, usually not blooming til late August, have come and gone. Your little cutie is enjoying the garden fare! Hugs ~ Mary

  4. I just love that last picture. Is there anything cuter than a child in a garden? I used to love to eat the sweet peas right off the vine. xo Diana

  5. That is the cutest bunny I have EVER seen!!!!

  6. Awww....your last photo is so cute!

  7. She is such a cutie pie! Eating fresh good for her!

  8. Gardening with the Littles is great fun! Our Bree...loves radishes and NOW...tomatoes! Last year...not so much but this year, she loves eating them.
    She also loves playing around the yard and giving the chickens 'sprinkles'. ~Pat

  9. Life is good, in your backyard, with flowers, veggies, chicks and babes! ~ Maureen

  11. What a lovely Friday post, Elaine. I agree that your little girl is adorable munchin away on the fruits of her gardening labors.
    How I love impatience blooms. When I lived in San Diego I had so many in my garden. they always did so well.
    Your chickens look so content. The SoCal climate is just perfect for them.
    Have a great weekend,

  12. Oh I really like all of these pictures. It is a pretty site to see everything blooming and growing. Precious little girl!

  13. Thank goodness for the rain we have had. It has brought the garden back to life. Love the picture of your sweet little gardener.

  14. beautiful summer moments! i love your bunny.. while I was outside drinking my morning coffee .. there were 2 bunnies nibbling grass
    (which i took picturs of for simple sunday) ~ Wouldn't they have loved a big yummy carrot like that!!!
    have a great day

  15. What a cutie... and there is nothing like veggies straight out of the garden! I remember when I was little, my sister and I would take a salt shaker into the one acre garden my dad planted and eat anything that was ripe, especially the tomatoes! Thank you for sharing on Weekly Top Shot #42!
