It's June 15th. Last night a wind storm came through and tore down a tree two streets over. The power was off for almost 5 hours. It warmed up a bit in the house. No painting was accomplished in the dark. And now, the blooms.
Echinacea "White Swan"
The first Sunflower.
Hot pink Four O'clocks.
Red Four O'clocks.
The first zinnia. Why are they always pink in my yard?
There's a vitex blooming in the pokeweed jungle.
Om, nom, nom. The next squash is being created.
White Butterfly Bush. This is one of the two I have. I grew this one from seed.
This creature was spotted this morning hanging from the bottomside of a weed I missed last week on the slope. I think it's molting into something I've never seen before.
It's 72 degrees. Another hot day is on tap. Rain possible. Storms likely. Robert will be here by noon to help with the countertops. I'm off to take a test.
