The skies grew dark yesterday and it rained yet again. Seems the weather is angry right now. Its many moody changes are fast and erratic.
However my garden welcomes the rain unless it gets to be too much. At least I’m not having to water the plants.
Yesterday my daughter and Andrew came over after church. I made grilled cheese sandwiches. Andrew also enjoyed two cups of applesauce.
So let’s get back to the garden.
The sedum autumn joy is growing so high and thick now. In a few months it will have rust-colored stalks of tiny flowers.
Here are my tomatoes. I have about a dozen unripe tomatoes on this plant right now.
This will be my first cucumber of the season. I’ll probably slice it over a salad when it’s ready.
My compact butterfly bush is starting to bloom. The butterflies will love the little purple flowers.
Yesterday from my chair I could see a big white butterfly seemingly floating around the garden from the French doors. I didn’t get up in time to get a photo of it however.
The green sweet potato vine has latched onto my sun on the wall. I wonder how it will look as it grows around the spikes?
I didn’t think of this when I placed the potted plant there.
The zinnia seeds I planted are starting to bloom. I suppose this yellow zinnia will be the first to open.
My blue container bed is out of control again and the hostas and lamb’s ear are about covered yet again.
However there is one spike from the hosta plant shooting above the leaves with a bloom.
The lemon grass is quite tall now. What a deal that is. Buy a small plant for under $3 and it grows so high. Remember lemon also repels insects.
I’m going to have to run. Charlie hasn’t been feeling well all weekend and I’m taking him to the vet. I don’t have an appointment so they are planning to work us in.
