Well, things certainly turned on a dime this week. I can’t believe how much we have to do now. The great thing is that it is on *my* schedule. No waiting for other people to move their asses.
Lots of blooms, so let’s get a little closer! The butterfly bush has lots of blooms now, even though the bush is a little misshapen.
There have been some monarchs and the little sphinx moth is back! I need to try to get a picture of him/her.
My burning bush is showing a blush of color – what is up with that??? It’s not even close to fall.
I have lots of volunteer coneflowers this year. Here is one that popped up near my delphinium:
This one is at the base of the butterfly bush:
And there are some volunteer black-eyed Susans along with more volunteer coneflowers in by my Tiki Torch:
What is not blooming? Pixie’s catnip.
The kitty that used to eat her catnip was hit by a car earlier this year and no kitty had been bothering this since then until the other day. I came out and found her catnip decimated. I have it sitting on top of the Saturn and hopefully the kitty won’t bother it up there so it has a chance to try to come back to life.
More globe thistles:
The rose bushes are gearing up for another flush – Yay!!
And finish out with some closeup of geraniums:
The weather should be great this weekend. There is a lot to do. I want a long ride since the new house will be eating up a lot of time, but we also have to get the current house decluttered and ready for showing! Eeek!
