So much is going on in the garden right now I don't hardly know where to start. Today has been a mix of summer weather. Thunderstorms and lightening this morning with the sun playing peek a boo before the next round is supposed to begin again. We got 5/8inch of rain this morning not so bad. The night before there was a worse storm.You can see as you walk down the gravel path that the 3.5inches of rain that came all at once washed the mulch out of the beds into the path.
Even worse was that my poor potting bench is on higher ground than the other side of the garden where the gravel path is and it had mulch piled onto the shelf that is 9 inches above ground. Geez.
I am hoping that the little House wrens don't decide to come out this afternoon. The young are beginning to become impatient awaiting food. They would fair better waiting until after this next storm.
Mom is still feeding as fast as she possibly can. It won't be long before they are out though.
I was delighted to get out between storms to see what all was happeningin the garden. Of course I had to pull weeds while the ground was so soft. The wheel barrow is full needless to say. I did find a new blossom in the garden.
My very first Lucifer Crocosmia is blooming. Thank you Randy. What a beauty it is.
Luna often comes to where I am photographing wondering what it is that grabs my attention. It seems she knows when something is special.
Not that she is nosey or anything.
She often grins like she knows she is in the way.
"Oh no Mom. I don't want to be in the way. I just want to help".
Back to flowers, I was sort of distracted. The daylily that I have named FIL (father-in-law) is blooming .
It was interesting to find the wild strawberries ripe. They dot the lawn.
It doesn't take long for a critter to find them.
Mushrooms are loving this wet weather.
All sorts of them are popping up in the mulch.
Sorry about this long winded post. It's just that I got tired of sloshing around in the garden and thought I would come in to visit awhile. Have a great week.
