Things not posted throughout the year, part four . . .
Here’s my townhouse yard in early August. Lots of leaves, not many flowers.
“Cooking” ice cubes. We took advantage of the curiously cheap organic raspberries ($1 a box!!) to make raspberry mint cubes. They were great in water or lemonade.
The Supertunia petunias I bought as an Easter gift for my parents.
After years of not being able to use their front door, my parents have a new deck!
The railing is old wrought iron from my great-grandparents farm.
Priscilla and Skippy are having a good day.
The community garden at sunrise.
Interesting objects in a garden.
When I run out of money, make the kid play for some change.
(That’s a joke for you humor-free folks.)
This is what happens when you are too busy to garden and ignore your watermelon, they explode! KABOOM! Five of ’em! I never have to buy watermelon seed again. I’m sure they’ll be coming up all over everywhere next summer.
Finally, some flowers in my back yard. They took forever and a day, yeesh!
And the Chilly Chilis finally have fruit!
My pots never turn out quite like I planned them. I should know better by now, alternanthera (the purple-leaf monster) is a giant.
