A couple of days ago, I was all about vegetables and tomatoes. Today, I'm all about floral and fauna, and my neighborhood right now does not disappoint. The crepe myrtles are currently at their peak, and beautiful from all angles, but the sunflowers are equally stunning! While on a walk with my neighbor (recovering from shoulder surgery), we took it easy, walking slowly around the block and admiring all the front yards with growing and blooming flowers, and even wild mushrooms popping up in the yards as well (and perhaps not really welcome). Even the humid air here in the Mid-Atlantic has a tinge of sweetness to it all thanks to everything in bloom.
