'Bursting' with blooms...



Some of the flowers are just almost "bursting" with happiness. And with growth and adding volume.

I love how Begonias do this, in top photo.

And how Impatiens do this, bottom photo. They keep sort of "puffing up," as Summer goes on.

The Farm Stand Is Open!!!

When B.J. Farms summer produce stand is open.... it is *officially* high summer!

We wait for this corn, all year long.

Picked this morning. Trucked a few miles over to this stand. Cook it up, in an hour or two.

Pop into boiling water for 2-3 minutes. No longer. Remove. Smother with butter and salt to taste.

The sweet taste of Summer!!!

HEAVEN!!! :-))))
