IN THE GARDEN-It's A Jungle Over Here!
Let's take a peek at what's happening in the garden this week!
I keep forgetting to show you something that I saw for the very first time, at our little local nursery. Black Velvet Petunias!
They really do look like velvet, don't they? Have you ever seen black petunias?
This patch of Pink Coneflowers is doing very nicely this year.
I can't tell what kind of bug that is, maybe a bee, but it looks like it's little legs are covered in pollen!
The Heliopsis is doing great here too.
Remember what my red bike looked like this Spring?
Who knew it was going to turn out like this?! Somebody needs to get in there next Spring and do some transplanting!
Well, it's about to get disgustingly hot here, in the 90s and humid for a week, so the gardens are basically on their own. That kind of weather just makes me nauseous and limp as a buttered noodle!
So early Saturday morning, my buddy Nancy and I will hit a few garage sales. Ok, more like 40! It's a subdivision sale, and it was a good one last year. We'll start at 7:30 AM, fill up the van with junk, and get home before the real heat of the day.
The rest of the week I'll just do a little light cleaning, maybe crank up the A/C to do some baking. Anything but go outside! I sure hope it's cooler in your little corner of the world!
