When I stepped outdoors this morning before church the yard was ablaze with color! What a treat to see all the pretty flowers blooming! When we drove by the bank thermometer at 12:45p.m. it said 99 degrees! I don't think it is quite that hot but pretty warm! We have been watering a lot and with this hot weather it looks like we will have to keep it up for awhile!
Here is a close up of the petunias in the cart. They were pretty tall when we bought them so thought they would get leggy fast but so far they are beautiful! All the little white clover in the lawn is blooming also. We are not good lawn people! lol Bob overheard a farmer in the store asking to buy clover. We have a good crop of it without trying!
This caterpillar was on one of my dill plants. Is this a good thing? I don't think it is a tomato hornworm as didn't see any horns, and it is not near my tomato plants.
A low height speedwell that I bought last year. It looks more pinkish in the flower bed.
My Wonderful Gardener is a handyman too! He is sprucing up the percola with white paint.
I love my piano and have had a lot of enjoyment playing it. The piano tuner was here this week and tuned it. We bought it new when we moved here, and I have had the same piano tuner come every year.
This is the wooden pot new this year. That is a marigold in the front, The eggplant that has come back after I accidentally cut the main stem off behind the marigold and lettuce planted behind that. Lemon Thyme will go in here to stay this fall for next year.
The lavender blooming away!
The Borage is starting to bloom. I think one of these plants will be enough for me next year!
The carrots look like they are doing well. I have tried to do better at thinning them this year so hoping they will produce some yummy carrots. Enjoy your flowers and gardens!!!!
