Summer Blooms #2

It's hard to believe 2020 is half over and summer is in full swing. We are starting to see new crops emerge, and there is so much satisfaction in the garden this year since we are home more to enjoy it. We got a new computer so it's taking me a while to get my photos organized. 

In France, some of the restaurants are using teddy bears to help with social distancing. Call me silly, but I would have no problem sitting next to a teddy bear in France whilst sipping a glass of French Rose. We have not been able to find a great French Rose upon returning from France last June. And speaking of France, the lavender started blooming the week after we were there lat year. So we didn't get to see it in full bloom, but made up for it on Sunday when we visited a lavender farm. They had over 10 varieties, and it was lovely. Thanks for stopping by!
