We did not have a lot of apples and oranges here as I pondered this week's header. The pear dessert that Marianne made was gone so my pondering led me to consider "fruits of our labor" as my subject. And the labor of the past several weeks has led to a bounty of blooms in our yard. so I decided to share with you some close-ups of the colors we now are enjoying. All but the azaleas in the header and the lily were acquired this June.
