other pretty growing things
The hops aren't the only things growing well for Matthew's parents; they have lots of lovely little plants. In fact, this year, they have a real, dedicated garden, which I've never seen them have before. It really is adorable. Small and sweet.
For whatever reason I found these blue candle holders charming, probably because they are tiny replicas of a chimneria style baking oven. And, as with last year, I kept taking photos of the lavender.
Not much had been harvested from the garden, just a zucchini and a few pear tomatoes.
Such a cute pair of pear tomatoes
Probably the exact same branch that I photographed at Christmas, but it looks so vastly different in the summer time, still lovely.
A few flowers among the vegetables, for color.
Now, I realize and fully understood at the time I took all these silly bee photos, that many professional photographers have taken amazing bee on a flower photos. There was no reason for me to waste my time with the task, but I still couldn't help myself. The bees were just so cute and fuzzy. I wanted to pet them.
