The Garden, Friday Aug 5..and a cool supper

First, a few views of the garden....
(you may click on photos to enlarge)




Sometimes, on these hot summer days, we like a salad supper. Today I made a chicken salad, no recipe; just things we like:
Cooked cubed chicken, nectarine, dried cranberries, and celery. The dressing was yoghurt, honey, a splash of vinegar, and a dash of curry powder....very tasty.


Along with it we had a potato salad, and some sliced fresh cucumbers from our garden, with just a sprinkling of salt...so, so good!
Now that we've checked out the food,.... here are a few more photos of the flowers which are blooming now:

More lilies (late blooming)
...and limelight hydrangea, just beginning to flower.
I'm recommending you go over to Tootsie's blog, where she hosts a Friday floral feature.

Hi Millie, The summer meal looks so light and delicious! What pretty gardens you have. I love that limelight hydrangea! Wishing you a great weekend. I'm taking a short blog break while my brother helps me "clean up" my computer!!!

Mmmm...your dinner looks so very delicious and cool. I don't like cooking on hot days, either.
Your flowers are just glorious in their beauty! The limelight hydrangea is so pretty!
Hugs, Cindy
