Chive Macro

Love growing chives for the green "onion" taste.  These come from a bulb and easy to divide and share with friends.  This shot is taken by a macro lens showing the detail on the petals.  Can be purchased as a card etc on my Red Bubble Site:

Summer Ending Quote

Created this quote on my own grunge background.  We had a perfect summer, no storms, no hail!  Just kept busy watering as we had a very dry summer.

Astilbe Delight

Perennial grown in my backyard.  They love compost to be dug in around the root area.  Deadhead to keep the plant looking tidy.
