We planted about 85% of them the first summer after we moved here so this will be their third full growing season. Every one of them has matured beautifully and they're a delight to behold.
Won't you join me in my Sunday morning stroll?
In addition to the flowering gardens, one of the best things about this time of year and until mid October is that our local Farmers' and Traders' Market is in full swing.
Every Saturday morning Mr. Painted Quilt, Ollie and I head to town bright and early while it's still cool and everything is as fresh as can be. I forgot to bring my camera yesterday but we managed to come home with lots of goodies including freshly picked strawberries from a local farm, a crusty olive bread, a pound of the best scallops in the world caught locally in the Bay of Fundy and some green and yellow beans.
Here's all that's left of the strawberry rhubarb pie that I baked yesterday afternoon.
Yup, it was that good!
Do you think that there will be any left by the time dinner time rolls around?
