June Garden Blogger's Bloom Day

From my mom, Melody:

It's Garden Bloggers Bloom Day again - if you don't know what that it, check out May Dream's Gardens and Carol will explain it. Don't forget to check out the other bloggers who have posted their pictures too.

You would think I would have more pictures to post ... but it's too hot ... the sun is too bright ... or its raining. Here's the best I have for this month.

Bright Eyes Crocosmia

Blue Spruce Sedum

Ornamental Banana

Wild Horsement covered in pollinators - this was a busy plant!

"The Regulars"


A collection of portraits taken over a period of two years has earned Sarah Stolfa acclaim as a photographer. Rather than "chaos and smiles" in the bar, Stolfa has captured another side of bar life - those poignant, lonely moments that patrons share with their bartender. Stolfa wasn't a talkative bartender at Center City's McGlinchey's. Instead, she wanted a way out. After a stint of ten or eleven years, she McGlinchey's to pursue her MFA in Photography at Yale. Purchase "The Regulars" by Sarah Stolfa. Photographs excerpted from "The Regulars" by Sarah Stolfa.
