Whoa! You have to admire that rack on such a little bug. Anybody know what kind of bug it is?
Yesterday my mother-in-law gave me some heuchra. I don't know where I am going to plant it yet.
I was outside this morning removing all kinds of stuff from the rockwall garden. I am trying to get rid of all the flowers back there except for the spring bloomers--tulips, etc. The rest of the year, I just want foliage plants. This loosestrife is a nice plant back there. Lots of color even when it's not in flower. I split this one in half this morning so I now have two of them.
It's discouraging trying to keep the flowers out of that area. I got fed up with digging and went for the Roundup. I sprayed it in so many areas. I can only imagine what a mess I will have in about 10 days.
After working outside for a couple of hours, I came in to make a veggie pizza to take to an Independence Day BBQ later this afternoon. (Pea, I will save that recipe you gave me for our Labor Day event. I didn't read my comments until last night and I had already bought all the ingredients for this pizza thing.)
And let me tell you, there are a LOT of ingredients to dice. Carrots, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, radishes, green pepper, yellow pepper....SHOOT! I just realized I forgot the Vidalia onions! Oh, well, too late now. I guess I could go out on the deck and get a few chives to add for onion flavor. It's quite a colorful appetizer.
I hope you all have a great holiday.
This will be my last post until Sunday because I am off for a little adventure.
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
