Raspberries, Peas and Flowers

It is time to start picking raspberries, I think I just barely recovered from the strawberries. We have two kinds large ones which don't have a lot of flavor and the smaller ones which are very tasty.

This is our pea patch, the white you see is the top of a fence post. We have been utterly amazed at the peas, we never ever have had a patch like this.I think the Jolly Green Giant has been here. We are going to have to start picking and I won't be so impressed then.

Here are some up close shots of roses in my yard.

Here is some up close shots of some of the lily's I have around my yard.

These lily's are almost as tall as I am, not that I am very tall but for lily's they are tall for people I am short.

Sitting on my front porch this is the view of the garden across the front lawn. I love sitting out there in the evening as the sun is going down. Sundays are great because there is no guilt to be out weeding when it is so nice. It was a beautiful evening, about 70 degrees at 8:00pm. Everything is growing great after a cool late spring.


  1. I love your view. Those peas are going to be lots of hard work picking them. They'll be so tasty though! Pretty flowers.

  2. Love your flowers! And the raspberries look delicious! Have a happy week!

  3. Wow....I guess I will get to see this first hand come next week. YOu and Art certainly have the green thumb...

  4. Your flowers are gorgeous. Wish I had some raspberries, but I am glad that I don't have to pick all of those peas!

  5. Your pea patch is going to give you a workout! Your flowers are beautiful and so is your view. Thanks for sharing. Yummy, I can taste the raspberries now. Put Barb to work next week helping you pick those peas.

  6. It looks like a wonderful place to rest and enjoy the sights. My mouth is watering with those delicious looking raspberries.

  7. Wonderful gardens...both veggie and flowers. Raspberries are my absolute favorite! Yum!
