Wildflowers and Harvest

 

 We picked the first squash from our garden today.  It is a new (to us) variety of round squash. 

I would like to tell you it is about the size of a pumpkin. 

 

But it is really not quite that large.   Here is another view.  It is called “Eight Ball” and isn’t it cute?  Of course it is going to take quite a few of those to make a meal!  There are several more set on, as well as many more plants of traditional zucchini so hopefully we will have lots of squash.

The wildflowers are  abundant this year.  It is incredible to me that something so beautiful could grow and blossom every year on their own without any tending from us humans.  I guess God is a pretty good gardener. 

The foxgloves are my favorites.

    I love the oxeye daisies. Yesterday we cruised north on on motorcycle and saw all the same flowers you have. All of our have dried up and blown away.
