After taking the dogs for a swim at the lake we returned to the house for a leisurely breakfast of boiled eggs, canteloupe and toast with this year's blackberry jam.
Yes, the blackberries are already ripe. They're early this year, along with most other things. Just look at what's happening in the garden.
Tons of sweet yellow tomatoes
And the larger ones are getting huge. Usually we never get to eat these off the vine but one is already turning red.
The apples are starting to ripen already--and it's only August! Same goes for the Italian plums.
I'm off now to join this honey bee and do some puttering in the garden.
As for Harry, he's decided to take the ironing out to the patio. Not a bad way to spend a morning in late August.
