Garden Flashback (July)

February 9, 2012

Eyes closed, please.

Now imagine that ice-cold stare of that big blanket of snow…gone. *poof*

In its place the heat of July.  Yes, you’re sweaty and your hair may have grown a hundred unruly wings in just a couple of minutes – but no icy cold stares are in your view now!  July in Iowa can sometimes be a bit overwhelming as we all find ourselves cussing the hot sun and high humidity at one time or another – but no icy cold stares are hanging around and making it unbearable to be outside!  We always find a time to be outside in July, even if its 10 o’clock at night, right?

Would you turn this July setting down?  Didn’t think so.


And please tell me you would not turn this beauty down!

With July you can get beauties like these too.

Fresh cut lily


Forever & Ever hydrangea in vase

Or friends like these.


July is when the vegetable garden really starts putting out some great stuff as well.

Red potatoes


Green beans…

Fresh Green Beans

Cherry tomatoes…

Sun Sugar cherry tomato

Which help in making excellent choices for dinner.

Fresh Green Beans, Mushrooms and Kale with Brown Rice & Caramelized Onions

Yep I sure still do miss June.

July ain’t too shabby either though.

What’s your favorite month of the year and why?
