Sweet friends! Thanks so much for your lovely comments on yesterday's 1,000th post! Oh, my day was so happy. :o) I thought I'd keep it light today and just share a few photos taken in our backyard this past weekend.
This year's blood orange crop is progressing nicely. These two oranges are right about eye level so I have plans to document their growth - like I'm desperate for something to photograph. Ha! They are a little challenging to photograph though, as they are shaped like...well...the two of them are an interesting arrangement.
I set out some more of these vincas and hope they survive better than the last batch. We've since had our sprinkler system/drip lines revamped, and Doug's fence has successfully kept Lucky from digging here, so fingers crossed that these beauties flourish.
I also did a little planting in some containers, including the flower pot that was supposed to glow-in-the-dark.
I didn't even realize until I was looking through my camera lens that something is eating my basil. Dang.
And here's the clown of the backyard, Lucky the Dog, at your smiley service. He's such a funny little dog; so entertaining too.
We're almost over the hump where summer heat is concerned. August is knocking at our door and puts us one step closer to autumn. I planted another round of sunflower seeds in hopes that we'll have a fall and winter crop this year. You know I'll keep you posted...
What's growing on your part of the planet right now?
