When I let the butterfly plants grow larger, they perform a wonderful job of blocking the unsightly scene, but now my plants are slimmer and shorter and thus not quite doing an adequate screening job. I might have to rethink the idea of trimming them too much the next time. Some years she tones down all this yard clutter but this year it seems anything and everything is fair game in the yard - right in my line of view. I don't mention it because I'm afraid she might increase her "beauties".
Can't believe it, but we are having a bit of thunder rumble and the sky went from sunny to overcast in a matter of minutes. There appears to be a front coming through NC but is again to be primarily south of us. That's a bummer. This has happened several days recently as fronts move through with great fanfare only to give up its precious rain to some other location. I'm praying we get some rain in our area this time which is so desperately needed. The weather forecast looks promising for precip the next 24 hours. And I'm still praying. Sweetz was heading out to water our garden but with the promise of rain, he decided to wait and see if we get anything out of this front.
Our stargazer lilies are just beginning to bloom and I definitely want to get some pictures of them. Their fragrance is out of this world. And the tiger lilies are in full bloom now too. Both are exceptionally beautiful. Wonder if I can head out safely to snap a few pictures before this storm hits us...
Later...OK, got a decent one of the stargazer lily.
|Stargazer Lily's first bloom this year - a hundred left to open|
|Our porch cherry tomato plant produces about 8 beauties every day!|
|Tiger lilies are top heavy but if we were little people, we could look up and see beautiful blooms|
