Do you get tired of garden photos? I hope not, because that is all that is really happening around here in the dog days of summer. The garden has gone wild. The David Austin rose is blooming again, the zinnias are still rioting and the butterflies are feasting on buddlia 'til they are quite drunk on nectar.
The photo on the right is the Kentucky wonder beans that Earl planted this spring. they must be 12 feet high and we had our first meal of them last night:>) They haven't done much as far as bearing, all those vines yielded a large handful of beans, but they are still blooming and I hope that means they are done growing up and will put their full energy into producing beans! Even if they don't they are lovely to look at and the morning glories that reseed themselves have stolen up the supports so we see their little purple heads peeking out in the morning. The cinderella pumpkin has more than quadrupled in size this past week. Amazing! And the sunflowers tower over us with dinner plate sized blooms that the bees just can't get enough of. It's summers finest effort before the fall. I am working hard to finish this semester (two more weeks and then a couple weeks of total freedom!) Some projects are on the sewing machine and, I admit, I've done a fair bit of nothing when I could have been producing something. Ah well, summer doesn't last forever and sometimes a little vacation laziness is in order. I hope you are all getting your last days of summer fill of sunshine, warmth and flowers:>)
