Butterflies and Watermelon


The butterfly bushes are full of blooms and butterflies...

I would have liked to share more photos of them but between their fluttering and the wind, these were the only 2 butterfly photos I could get yesterday...

Pretty Kitty AKA Piglet...
She is one the 4 "barn cats" that spend all day sleeping on the porch or inside the house whenever a door is opened...They are a little confused as to their roll around here.

Out the back the cucumbers are blooming...

The tomatoes are producing lots of fruit...

And getting quite big already...

The corn is also getting quiet tall too...It is amazing how a row of 72 plants can look so small when next to acres of watermelon plants...

I had gone out to try and get some photos of the watermelon blooms and was surprised to find there are already melons in the field...

Karen said...

Kelsie, you have melons already? Oh, wow. And 4' tall cornstalks? I just have to keep telling myself Spring will arrive this year so we can play frantic catch-up.

The butterfly bush is really just what it's name says it is, a bush full of butterflies. How pretty. Love your kitty, too!
