~Surprises Growing in the Garden~

This morning I went outside into the garden and found 
our grapes shining in the morning light.
They are always so pretty this time of year.
The clusters amaze me.

Love to see it growing from the kitchen window.
A patina bell we got awhile back on a trip to Arizona.
A silver teapot was a nice surprise hanging next to the grapes.
The zucchini are taking off
 from the heat we're having in
 San Diego.

Our pumpkins are starting to grow too!
Indigo Tomatoes

Black Pearl Tomatoes
and Thyme.

Love that song from 
~Simon and Garfunkel~
Baby Boo Pumpkins

Pretty Pink Strawberry Flowers
Bush Beans
The new area is filling in nicely.
It will be a beautiful day in the garden today.
