Amongst the Veggies

Sunday afternoon I dragged Paul along to a friend’s home to tour her vegetable garden. As I sit here going through my photos, there’s barely a vegetable to be found. Clearly I was taken with the flowers she has growing amongst the veggie beds.


Spiky red bee balm.


Butterflies on the cone flower.


The poppy seed bods outshine the blooms.


Tall spires of snakeroot.


Great spangled fritillary.


Poppy seed pods.
