Some more produce from the courtyard. Loving my 4x4 strawberry bed with Everbearing strawberries! Only picked two zucchini so far and they are fat in the middle but not very long. Why is that??? Hoping for another one or two but will see! My first Rutger tomato picked. Very few raspberries. Only one bush is producing. Something shredded so many of the leaves this year!
A Queen Anne's Lace was growing in the middle of a bush. They frown on this kind of flower (weed) in the front yard. Guess they don't appreciate God's gift of free beauty!
I cut off the flowers before pulling it out and made a little bouquet.
The girls made my gluten free muffins for me and my gluten free cookies! Aren't they the cutest and sweetest little girls!
Here is a picture of the gluten free yum-yum cookies. Would you like one?
There were about 11 of these and this is the only one left except a baby one. I hope this one decides to take off soon to make his chrysalis.
This butterfly and another small one came back to visit. I like to think they were the ones from here that developed into butterflies!
There are two of these things laying on the soil and I think they are dead. It is probably my fault because before I knew better a couple crawled off to another place and I brought them back. One was crawling up the side of our house.
This is one of the caterpillars that crawled off and is forming a chrysalis on the wrought iron near our gate. He had to go a long way from the raised bed on legs down on the mulch beside the edge of the cement all the way here. He was moving right along when I saw him. It has been interesting to learn about butterflies!
These are the supports that hold up the covers on this bed. I am using them for a trellis and trying to grow yellow pole beans and a cucumber.
The birds planted this sunflower but not in the best spot but I left it there. It was fun to see this goldfinch trying to eat the seeds.
Here is another picture of him. I love to see goldfinches. So bright and cheery! Thanks for taking the time to visit me. Please leave a comment so that I will know that you have been here. Enjoy your week! Nancy
