Photo lushness, garden goodness

Monday I visited a friend in the more rural part of the county to help her pick her garden produce. What a garden! It was beautiful as were the rolling hills surrounding it and the treeline filled with songbirds. At 7:30 am they were lively, the heat of the day not having set in nor the dew having been dried by relentless summer Georgia sun. Here are a few pictures of my drive to there, and the garden itself.

A quiet, windy country road over red clay in the early morning.

Sunrays peeking out from the clouds as I turned the curve out from under the trees.
Reminded me of the Downeast blueberry barrens on the way to Lubec, Maine
Her garden. Nice, isn't it?!

Her granddaughter in the sunflower row.
Aren't sunflowers gorgeous??
Finally tired of cavorting with the kids, the dog just sits and guards the garden.
Somehow the cat makes a more threatening guard, lol.
See the bees working the sunflower?

And that was one fine summer day. I came home with tomatoes, cukes, purple hull peas, beans, blackberries, and blueberries. Thank you for sharing!
