Staying cool at forest school
Red, white, blue
Better late than never with the red, white and blue!
Watching fireworks on the 4th
In Onondaga Cave
The one rock you are allowed to touch in the cave
These drip down and form…
This was the coolest “room” of the cave
Onondaga cave is just as impressive as Meramec Caverns and as a bonus it is within a state park so there are other things to do there.
Such as go for a swim in the Meramec River!
There were tons of these along the river’s edge
Back in the garden, things are pretty neglected right now (it is so hot! and soooo much school work!) but there are still a few nice sights and things.
Dill and in the background is a flower called “candytuft”
Garlic (one bulb harvested anyways); this one with the root bit torn off when I dug it up)
Zinnias of all different colors are popping up
This hardy hibiscus is right in the center of the garden
Dragon’s Eggs (cucumbers)
I must be on to something, right?! ahaha
Scorched love in a mist seed pods
The butterflies mob the mimosa trees all day
Most of the sunflowers are quite short
