Have you ever eaten a peach from a tree you planted in the backyard? A peach washed by the summer rainstorm that passed through about an hour before? I have. It was delicious.
About 100 more to come.
The stargazers are still going strong. Seen here with a small Zuni crape myrtle, fancy ditch lilies, Red Texas Star, and a few bits and pieces of other things.
Goldstrum is blooming. The wasps still enjoy the spearmint.
Full Moon Coreopsis gives me some yellow in the yard. It sprawled again. It should grow to about 32". It makes it to about 30 and hits the ground leaving the crown exposed.
The blackberry lilies are blooming too. I wintersowed lots of seeds and planted all of them out a few weeks ago. They will bloom next year for the first time.
On Thursday, a customer came into the store to let us know there were some kittens in a box in the parking lot. Four of them. One went home with a cashier. I am currently in possession of the other three and trying to find them good homes. One is spoken for but will remain with me for a couple weeks. The two males are available.
I gave them a bath as soon as we got home. They were covered in fleas.
The spoken for calico and her brother.
Big tabby is big.
We're about to get our third storm of the afternoon. It's nice having rain every day. The mosquitoes are multiplying faster than the bats.
It's 85 degrees and soggy.
