I sifted more of the dirt piles and planted the rest of the hot peppers. The squash are hanging in there — even the one I thought would be dead by now.
I’ve decided I need a bug book with lots of pictures. I don’t know what this is, but it sure is cool:
At first, I thought it was a dead leaf stuck on my trellis. But that’s the point, right?
Pretty impressive, yes? I looked at it for a long while. I don’t know if it is friend or foe, but it doesn’t matter. I’m not messing with it. No way.
I love moon plants.
Can you find my helpers?
The Orphan Cucumbers
The smallest sunflower is the only one with, ummm, a flower.
My embarrassingly audacious front yard sunflowers. The fence is 4 foot plus, so these big boys are approaching 8 feet.
The orchid tree survived the deep freeze, but we had to cut it all the way back. It survived Hurricane Ike as well, so I am certain it will be back in all of its glory by next year.
I can’t remember what the name of this plant is, but it attracts honeybees and butterflies. I cut it all the way down (it had been taller than the house) after the freeze almost killed it. In the past, it has been a quick growing large bush, so I am hopeful about its recovery.
For Dora, this is not a swimming pool, but rather a very large water bowl.
Pretty girl 🙂
My helpers followed into the front. I really enjoy working in the garden — and spending time with these silly kittens is part of the reason why. Junebug always watches me work, unless she has found a sweet spot to sleep. Harry has to investigate everything I do once I have moved on. He’s only mashed a few plants and I don’t freak out about it like I did in March or April. He’s too cute. Especially when I chase him out of the beds.

Tomorrow I will get more green beans started.
