Summer Weekend

A typical Virginia weekend, hot and steamy. The garden is so lush right now, so much green everywhere (except for the lawn, which is turning the usual July brown) with pops of pink here and there. Blooming now are phlox, daisies, purple coneflowers, yarrow, day lilies, zinnias, a few roses.  I worked in the garden both mornings, mostly watering, weeding, and cutting back, still pulling out larkspur.  On Saturday I went to the farmer's market at Lake Anne--it's always a pleasure to see that pretty flowery wall along the lake, and pick up some fresh produce as well.
