On these hot days, it's good to get outside by seven or earlier to get the watering done before the sun burns off the morning mist.
It's a good time to pick tomatoes and cucumbers and beans -- and that early light is good for taking pictures.
The bees are at work too.The tomatoes are afflicted by blight -- I've been removing the affected leaves which is whay the plants look so minimalist.
I'm somewhat schizophrenic in the garden -- pulling weeds, picking tomatoes . . . and then light illumines the graceful curve of a blade of corn and I have to go get my camera.
Sunflowers for the house -- I'm tempted to pick some crepe myrtle but I know how bad it sheds...I'll enjoy it on the tree.
A load of weeds and worm-infested broccoli for the biddies.
And the sunlight transforms a simple Rose of Sharon.
