You know Summer is in full swing in my area when the Black Eyed Susans start to look like this...they love this weather and will bloom and bloom until late Autumn.
We have tons of these beauties in the yard...all from one plant many years ago...I have separated it so many times...and I have given lots of starters out...they are the most wonderful plants...easy and cheerful!
Another of my favorites is Cone flower...or Echinecea...this is purple...they get really tall in the back yard...behind them is Autumn Sage...there are little tiny flowers on it that the humming birds and carpenter bees love...this particular one is crazy huge...I can't keep up with it...I could trim it every day if I had time...it grows that fast!
While I was playing with the flowers and veggies...Don was up picking the last of the peaches in our tree...we get green beetles this time of year that will boar into the fruit if we don't get them all off...its not pleasant...so we will let those that are still a bit hard ripen in the house...safer there!! It was a pretty morning out this morning while we were gardening...a bit warm...but it's Summer! I don't know what happened but suddenly I can't type under the last picture...weird! This is what Pam, my letter carrier, brought me today!! It's so much fun wool to play with...if you like wool and want great pieces...go visit Hungry Hook Primitives...she's great! The ones on the right look purple...but in person they are raspberries...oh so luscious and wonderful...do I sound a bit crazy...well...I guess I am when it comes to wool and fabrics...oh and a whole host of other things!!
Until next time...enjoy the day!!!
