Butterfly enjoying a marigold among the garlic scapes
And some flower portraits…
Calendula (I think?)
Raindrops on roses
“Bowles Black” Pansy
A perfect portait!
Into the flower press they go!
Love-in-a-mist; these are very easy to grow; they reseed every year and the patch keeps getting bigger
We have been enjoying many bouquets of cut flowers from the garden, and:
A huge display of garlic scapes
We have SOOOoooo many garlic scapes. They are good for eating (use anywhere you would garlic; they just have a milder flavor) and I love the whirly twirly spirals; perfect for a very cool arrangement!
Ready for a game
The Spy has been sketching a lot of sports logos lately; this is the Duke University logo; drawn freehand!
I compared these pictures to last year’s snakes and this one is quite a bit smaller
The kids have named him (or her) Tonguey III
Onion seed pod
Enjoying a dip in the creek after a run
Making a wake
Very red mushrooms on the forest floor
Not sure what type of mushrooms these are
Part of a lunar moth wing (I think)
Some of the garlic (I didn’t even plant any last fall and there is SOOOooo much of it!) Garlic is so easy to grow.
Early June in the garden
Hope you all are having a nice start to your summer!
