I picked up a couple of lovely full size and blooming foxgloves at the local Feed Store this past week...For now I have them still in the pots they came in but placed where I would like them to be planted...So far they seem to be liking with the garden Angel who greets those coming thru the front gate....
The Forget-me-not is blooming...I am so pleased as it is one of my favorite cottage type flowers and reminds me of my childhood home...
This watermelon bloom is for a very dear blogging friend...it resides on a volunteer watermelon vine next to my front porch...this lady is so sweet and always blesses me with her encouraging comments and friendship, whenever I now see a watermelon bloom I am reminded to be a better person to all I meet in life and online...Thank you Pat for being you *hugs*
I was so excited to be able to create my first bouquet of cut flowers...They made a great last minute gift for our neighbors 61st wedding anniversary :)
This is another one of our "confused" barn cats...Does that look like a barn in the back ground...no it is a nice soft comfory couch in our living room...This is GINGER, she is a Manx as you can tell by her lack of tail...She is also very naughty and daddy's baby...
And finally the veggies in the melon field...Look at the size of the corn, it is taller than hubby...The tomatoes will fill your hand and are just starting to turn yellow...not long now...Bottom left is a baby cantaloupe...mmmm can't wait for these babies to be ready to eat...and lastly, the cucumbers are coming in now...I picked one on Monday and the one pictured did not look ready, well today it was 14inches long...and there are a few about 7 inches that will need to be picked in the next day or so...
I have much to get done in the yard but with the weather getting into the 90's now it is not quite as pleasant as it was a couple of weeks ago...Might be time to switch my focus back indoors for a little bit while we wait for the harvest to start...And then my adventure into learning canning will begin lol.
