Bloomin' Tuesday

While friends in the neighborhood were away last week,
I took care of their sweet pooches.
Here are a couple of sights from their yard.


They are newly enchanted with cats
and their metamorphoses.

They missed the show this time,
but there will be others.
Their milkweed has multiple critters on it.

Their hibiscus is a lovely shade of peach.

A huge pot of impatients graces their lanai.

Back in our yard,
I finally got a small hill of pumpkin planted.

These are the small sugar pumpkins,
perfect for Lil' Guy's pumpkin bread in the morning.

I also ended up making some seed pots
out of some butcher paper that came in a package a while back.

Hope to have some  homegrown eggplant
and tomatoes for making gravy.

Love when things come up so fast!

I can almost taste the ratatouille!

This has been sprawling in several places in the beds.

I pulled it out to make room for the pumpkin hills.

Yeah, it was a busy morning!

Those weeds could wait no longer.
These are my "yard clothes".
Sometimes a shower feels oh-so-good.

Well, now.
It seems our grasshopper population is expanding.
And no, Darla, I will not squish them.

Hope your garden is enjoying some visitors this fine day!
