How my garden grows {while I'm away}

And now, for something totally different.

Next to the digital camera, I think the automated sprinkler system is the coolest invention ever.


While I was away from home helping my mom go home, my snapdragons got their daily dose of water without Doug having to bother with it.


And this pretty orange zinnia bloomed without me standing by to watch it unfold. I grew this beauty from a seed. :o)


Some hungry bug/moth/caterpillar had a big ol' party on my basil plant. Time to re-plant some marigolds around here!


Yes, my little garden survived my absence, but it's in need of some tender, loving care.
Aw, just like me these days.
This weekend...

I love that orange zinnia. I need to get out and clear out my perennial bed. Everything is gone now. There'll be no more flowers except from the grocery store for the next 7 months or so. Take good care of yourself!
