Show me a sign!

More pictures from down at the Community Garden. From the start, we visualized this sign, framed by some flower-y berms. Tony & I painted it as a collaborative effort, but his sign-painting illustrator's background is most evident (I did the veggies)... that's him as the bee, methinks!

Sunflowers going strong. Irresistible to photograph. More are on the way. Bees are happy!

Growing in Wisconsin

I've been away, and I have returned... Here are some things abloom -- and just past-- in Dawn & Carrie's community plot. I dare say there was a tinge of Fall in the air.

Pear Season

Pears are ripening now! Along with apples & grapes-- tomatoes still green mostly, but we're heading into a bit of heat so maybe they'll turn soon.
We planted our pear tree, a seckel, -- several years ago, bare root. There have been a few pears here or there, but this years harvest looks to be far more bountiful. A friend helped us to try to prune it properly this spring-- maybe that's part of it-- plus its maturity, no doubt, and agreeable weather conditions...

ripening pears.
