This is a post of pictures. The garden is so pretty in the morning after the sprinklers have had a go…..that’s when I normally have a meander and find vegetables that need to be eaten, weeds….alot….that need to be pulled and the critters that call the garden home. Like this giant spider. The kids were quite impressed. If any one knows what kind of spider it is, well, I would love to know. The bees are loving it here too, right now I have a swollen toe thanks to a honey bee underfoot. But I’m glad they are here…doing my part to save america’s crops. This is a bumble bee though, on one of my dahlias.Some more dahlias, which I thought were annuals that I planted last year, started from seed, but they have come back strong, so maybe I have some tubers going on. Yeay! I suppose they are they same? The one’s from the tubers and the ones from seed….Then there is my brandywine. That is ripe already. A good 4 weeks ahead of last year! Yeay!!
…..oh, and Rufus. Who just so happens to be Rufusita. Or four of them. Immature femal Rufus Hummingbirds. Kicking up quite a racket in the early am and then when the shade falls back on the garden in the evening. I suppose there is only enough nectar for one:)
