Blue in the Garden

Posted by Picasa


I didn't plant this.
It just popped up, along with the 7 or 8 tomato plants behind it
in the compost pile.
I thought maybe they were squash at first,
but now it seems like we might have a lot of pumpkins on our hands.

Where is all that rain??

And the rainiest city in the U.S. is...
Mobile — not Seattle — ranks highest in the contiguous 48 states

My Shade turns to Full Sun

Last weekend my neighbor decided that it was too much work to
clean up after the huge magnolia tree in his side yard.
So he cut it down.

This tree just happened to shade most of the east side of my house.
I now have a beautiful view of his house,
and a full sun garden.
(And since we are now getting into some serious heat
I can't wait to see the power bill)

Good thing I held off on really planting any thing in this spot.
There is a tiny verigated hydrangea that
looks like its getting burnt leaves already.
