So I thought I'd share some of my favorite flowers with you. In another couple of weeks, most of the perennials will be done until late August. Poor planning on my part, I guess. So I try to enjoy them while I can.
I photographed so you hopefully can't see the weeds I still haven't caught up with.
|I love how the water beads on :Lady's Mantle!|
|I love my lilies!|
|We had a brief sprinkle this morning.|
|Another day lily. I'm not sure which is my favorite|
|The sedum is blossoming around the cactus|
|My favorite Lily!|
|I wish I could preserve the hydrangea at this stage!|
|Pink powder puff poppies|
|The blossoms last only a day, then they do this.|
|My first zinnia blossom- grown from seed!|
|I only have one convolvulus plant this year.|
|Very happy Nasturtiums|
I found it once, but can't now. It's some kind of creature. It fits several of the shapes in this picture, but it seems to me it was a worm-like sea creature.
(see how it sort of hooks off to the right?)
The big floppy feet are mine. :-)
I got a survey from my congressman the other day. One of the questions was which issue is the most important thing congress should be focusing on. Climate change/ the environment wasn't even one of the choices. I wrote it in big letters- adding, you know the whole clean air and water thing! If we cannot breathe, NOTHING else matters!!! It's a few years old, but "An Inconvenient Truth" should be required viewing for anyone with the power to make the necessary changes. (And don't get me started on those who don't believe in climate change!)
I am grateful for:
A fantastic circle of friends.
Four of my five feral babies have found homes already!
Friends who I can count on to have my back.
A day that was good in both the garden and the sewing room!
