|Two cherry tomato plants (Sun Gold and Sweet Million) |
are producing a bowlful per day. We've begun bartering them for eggs
with a neighbor.
|The new butterfly garden looks lovely, |
with a nameless salvia, crocosmia and coneflower,
but I've seen perhaps two butterflies there. Lots of bees, though.
|Cosmos in the parsley|
|It rained nearly every afternoon for what seemed like weeks.|
|The cucumber trellised itself on the cherry tomato plant.|
|This brown thrasher spent several minutes rubbing its belly |
and preening on the top of the Prius.
|This bunny thinks he owns the garden. He's been eating coneflowers,|
coreopsis and on the plus side, Johnson grass.
|Crepe myrtles are peaking.|
|A small milkweed bug on the butterfly weed.|
|I can't decide if this combination of two unusual kinds of coleus|
and basket grass is creatively inspired or hideous.
