Glimpses of Summer in the Mountains

Beautiful blossoms are attracting the butterflies and bees.

The other day, I noticed this tree blooming.  The blossom is like a bristly feather fan.

We have got quite a stand of mullein growing out of an old pile of coal at camp.

The string beans are bearing: both Roma and wax.  The second picture, which I think has interesting perspective, was taken by our youngest.

A friend dropped off a solar dehydrator for us, so I am experimenting with herbs and greens.

Interesting mushrooms are growing under the oak tree beside our garden.  I think they might be edible, but I am too cautious to try them!

An afternoon at Martin’s Fork Lake was a welcome break from the heat we have been experiencing.  I had forgotten how beautiful the view is there.
