Summer is here! Everything is finally blooming (except my dang peonies—I'm so tempted to sneak some from my neighbor's yard, but I won't). My perennials are maturing a bit this year, so they're finally filling out my shade beds. I am so so SO excited about my perfectly-plotted-out vegetable garden too, even if it doesn't live up to my expectations.
Anyway, this little girl loves being outside. She's always digging in the dirt and "patting" my plants. For the most part, she doesn't yank them out, for which I am grateful. Stepping on them is a different story. I've been wanting to get a few shots of her with this lilac bush and realized it's almost done blooming, so today (before the rain!) was the day. Her fountain ponytail kills me.
