Rain – Puddles – Mud – Weeds – Flooding – Swampy – Tropical

The prettiest view on my little farm.

The garden with my ornamental corn is saturated.  I hope some of it survives.  It is getting tall.  Better to outgrow the weeds, I suppose.  This photo was taken 18 days ago … and I thought it was wet then.  There is not a brown spot of dirt in the patch now!  All grassy and weedy.June25 18 Days Ago

Even so, the tangles of tropical colors are much better than the grays/whites/browns of winter!June25 Zinnias

The pumpkins … Sis and I planted 55 hills.  I can’t get to them to weed them.  If they aren’t overtaken by weeds will they survive root rot?June25Rustic

Beauty in the tatters – June25 Grizabella

I called her Grizabella butterfly.  She reminded me of Grizabella in the Broadway musical, Cats.

For this weekend, I hope you find a sunny spot.June25 Sunny Spot

    I know you had lots of pretty flowers but my favorite photo was the tricycle. It needs a basket hanging on the handlebars that you can fill with potted flowers.

    I like the tricycle. My garden needs some fun things like that. I have to get all the plants to decide to hang around first. Coneflowers are a favorite, and they attract so many “passengers.” I like to watch the goldfinch bob around on one.
