this is a very nice shot...
I would have imagined lilies to be more of a Spring flower, while the dill at his maturity to be more to the end of the Summer, but who really knows? anything it's possible...
Anyway, I really like the soft light, and I like how neat and tasteful this image is done...
great job

Thanks Maria. Our weather here has been more spring like due to large amounts of rain and of course not much sun. It has rained for about three weeks straight since June and more on the way.

The dill was planted pretty early, and we usually let it grow and use the tops for canning pickles and Roma Tomatoes (something I have finally got used to). I was also thrown by the way things mature here, the Ukrainian Super Soil does make a difference. However, the excess water this year has killed my cilantro and my Mexican chilies did not take due to lack of heat ... this has made me pretty sad. Maybe next year!
