Our niece Tina invited us and her mother--John's sister Cindy--to dinner Wednesday. Tina is quite a gardener and a very creative person. She grows lots of flowers.
And also vegetables.
Notice the scarecrow in this garden plot.
And the large pumpkin in this area.
The other day, I told her I had never really seen potato plants. So while we were there, she harvested some she had grown.
You can see evidence of her creativity in this photo. Cindy is standing by a flower bed. In the background, you can see several structures that look like windows--being used as focal points in her back yard. Closer to the patio, she also displayed some old windows from the farmhouse where her husband grew up.
Here are some more beautiful flowers in her garden.
