A collection of hits from the summer.

yellow lily with raindrops
This lily graces the front yard.

Potato flowers
The potatoes may end up being the successes of this year’s garden. We caught a glimpse of one potato early last week—it was red and large, and I wanted very much to boil it then. But we covered it up. It will be good next month, too.

Onion bloom
We only had one onion that bloomed so well. The bulbs themselves turned out on the small side.

Late June clematis, a brilliant magenta in the sun
The clematis grows on an arch covering the walk in the back.

bright pink peonies
These peonies faded pretty quickly, but were brilliant while blooming.
