A garden interlude...

I fled the Chautauquan bubble this weekend to get home and whip my garden back into shape and also whip up a fresh batch of pesto. The Echinacea was thick and in full bloom with the Black Eyed Susans hot on their heels. I am overrun with Nasturtium but I imagine there are worse things to be taken over by...I have several varieties of Nasturtium, its one of my very favorite things in the garden. Enjoy the photos as I enjoyed being home to commune with my outdoor space. Monday morning its back to the bubble where I am as busy as these bees buzzing through the cone flowers. We are loading the big salt kiln on Saturday...stay tuned.
