Where does summer go? Here we are now in the midst of sweet corn, cucumbers, and a gazillion tomatoes and zucchini. Yum. The hot days inspire me to eat bean dip, texas caviar, ice cream, and lots of watermelon and canteloupe. Yum. As well as sweet tea. Let's not forget the sweet tea.  

And what's blooming in my garden on this first day of August. Russian lilies, phlox, and some stray sunflowers.

And that big vine? I was so hoping for a volunteer squash. But, it's pumpkin. Oh well, if anyone needs to carve some jack o'lanterns, come on over to my yard in October to grab a freebee!
