Round Robin Challenge: Summer Gardens

This challenge is now closed...thanks for playing! :)

Hello Robins... Time for our next challenge!

rRose, author of the journal, "WAIT-NOTYET," has chosen a lovely new challenge for us, "Summer Gardens." rRose asks the question, "How does your Summer garden grow? With fresh vegetables, fruits, a single pink rose, or many flowers?"

Sometimes, I find myself enjoying the summer gardens more then the gardens of spring. When summer days are unbearably hot, at least the flowers make things a little more pleasant. Lately I have been enjoying the Day Lilies and the 4 O'Clocks most of all and at night...ahhh...the Jasmine! Who could forget the lyrics from the Seals and Crofts song, Summer Breeze...

"Sweet days of summer, the Jasmine's in bloom
July is dressed up and playing her tune...
Summer breeze, makes, me feel fine,
Blowing through the jasmine in my mind
Summer breeze, makes me feel fine,
Blowing through the jasmine in my mind."

We are a little over half way through the summer, so it will be a nice tribute to this season to show off what we appreciate most from our summer gardens. Be it delicious vegetables, or the soft, fragrant flowers that remind us of the beautiful things in life, it's all good! If by some chance you don't happen to have a garden of your own this year, then it is perfectly ok to photograph your favorite public historic garden, public garden project, or even flowers at a garden market, that are ready for summer planting. Remember, you are only limited by your own imagination! The date of this challenge will be, Wednesday, August 9th. As always, you can post anytime between the midnights of that day.
