Bee balm, rue, asters, wild strawberry and milkweed in this patch
Milkweed buds (taken a few weeks ago: its blooming now!)
Little bug with black and white striped antennae on orach
seed pods. Fun to pick and fun to pop; they’re like little balloons. Love-in-a-mist is also called Nigella.
Check out this huge earthworm!
Buds peeking out (onion)
Cool wings on this bug
Teepee view facing south/southwest (this was taken a few weeks ago, now pumpkins are starting to creep up the teepee!)
A ladybug in the mist
Weeeee…love our swings!
Tree ID anyone? We were given two of these and the person said they were plum, but they haven’t fruited yet.
Foliage of our mystery tree.
Loads of garlic seeds (we ate a lot of scapes but also let many go to seed because I love how they look!)
I like to think of this as Grant’s garlic; because our friends’ the Grants gave us a small handful of these garlic seeds years ago. Now we have probably 50lbs of garlic! The garlic is nearly ready to harvest. Garlic grows underground but these seedheads grow up.
Pretty orach with dew drops
Marigolds and onions
Onion seed head
Who needs fireworks?!
This was the ONLY time we have watered the garden this year (taken 3 weeks ago). It has rained sooo much which is unusual for summer here in St. Louis.
Lemon Bee Balm
Baby is a great running buddy!
At the pool a few weeks ago (the Spy is still at camp; we miss him!!)
Baby especially misses her brother! He returns from camp this weekend!
