Seventh Day Project celebrates one-year anniversary

If it's August it's time for some deck sitting. And this year part of the view includes drifts of orange cosmos.
It's hard to believe I've been doing this for a year -- of course, you can find something in the garden every day to celebrate. True. Even in winter.

This year the Seventh Day stretched a bit into the Eighth Day because of a wonderful long weekend spent with out-of-town family. In any event, there are some remarkable differences between August 2010 and August 2009, no doubt due at least in part to this summer's extra-warm July. One notable benchmark: The Casa Blanca lilies are blooming now; last Aug. 7 they were still in buds. Another benchmark: The corn is twice as tall as it was last year at this time.

I had considered dropping the Seventh Day Project after a year, but I think I'll keep it going. I'm having way too much fun.

As always, check out the photos in the sidebar at top right.
