I have somewhere along the line fallen into the habit of unintentionally coordinating Clover's outfits with mine or mine with hers depending on which of us is dressed first. We never totally match, our outfits are just sort of attuned to one another you could say. I swear I'm not doing it consciously though! Anywhoo, just an observation.
As I mentioned previously, I've been loving tiny floral prints. I dream of thrifting some vintage liberty goodness, something along these lines would be just lovely!
Until that happens I'm making do with this cute little Old Navy top I found at the Welfare League Thrift for 2 bucks. I do love the colors in the print and the sweet pintuck detailing.
When I saw the two flowers from Lauren's swap package sitting on my bedside table, I just knew they needed to join the outfit. They are the exact colors as the flowers in the print, so into the unruly hair* they went! Hey that rhymes :)
Speaking of flowers, how gorgeous is this sunflower that just burst open at the entrance to our little vegetable garden?
Said garden, consisting of a large raised bed with tomatoes, squash, peppers, and beans, and a small bed with more beans and various herbs. It's definitely my favorite spot in our yard right now.
I wish I could take credit for its beauty. While I do help with the choosing of plants and where to put them, Lucas does all the real work and definitely deserves the credit. He is the green thumb in this little family for sure and we're lucky to have him!
The summer squash plants have been growing like crazy. They are getting seriously huge and it's becoming quite obvious that soon we're going to have more scalloped and crook necked summer squash than we know what to do with!
Yesterday evening while Lucas was watering, I collected our first little harvest (see, I help). Aren't they pretty?! Recipe suggestions much appreciated :)
Some of the green beans are starting to produce as well. You can't see it but that's what Clover is munching on in this photo. From the looks of it we'll be enjoying those too!
*The outfit was from a few days ago, the unruly hair has since been cut, stay tuned...
