September in the Lot (even though I am 527 miles away)

A very extra special deep down thank you, thank you to Rebecca for consistently and tenderly tending the garden in Toronto while I am in Chicago. For watering and watering, inspecting, admiring, sharing, photographing and giving unconditional advice, love and support, my gratitude.

Lucious Summer

The onions are tall, the dill is feathery and fragrant, the lavendar is flowering, the sage is full and that beautiful greenish-blue colour, there is enough basil for lots of pesto and the tomato plants seem ready to produce fruit anytime now. It's so fun to watch the garden grow with each rain fall and sunny day.
