I will give H props. He has tended his tomato plants and we are starting to see the fruits of his labor. We have had to water nearly every day.
|While H is laboring in the yarden, some us prefer to laze around. This planter of catnip and the hostas are her favorite lounging spaces.|
|H has invested in anti-deer netting|
My glads have really, really struggled this summer for obvious reasons. H and I were laughing the other morning, it is funny how they bloom in shifts. Nice, but strange.
|These were the first to bloom|
|Then these beauties (see the brown grass...)|
|and after last week's rain, these bright yellow ones joined us|
|For years this was tiny and low to the ground. This year it achieved bush status. I bought it for 99 cents late a few summers ago. I have no idea what it is.|
|Normally these guys wait until August-- but since August weather joined us in early July, they can be excused for being seasonally confused.|
It hasn't been all joy in the yarden this summer. Our trees have taken it tough with the strong winds and we lost our beautiful titmouse. I assume he is fine, but his house was lost cause.
|Apparently he did not have insurance and honestly, I didn't see anyway to put his shattered abode back together again.|
