A Walk in the Back Garden

Approaching the Garden

      It is Saturday morning, at about 6:30 AM, and I am itching to take my first stroll of the day in the garden.  Tis nice to sometimes just walk the garden, rather than have to work the garden.  Will be another hot one, as you can see the haze of the morning sky.

      It has been a great year for the volunteer salvia, the red flowers in the left corner.  Some of the salvia plants are pink, though fewer in number.  The Joe Pye Weed at the right, has been magnificent this year, a great magnet for bees and butterflies.

      The squash have now overgrown the neglected leaf pile.  I never got around to chopping up the leaves with the riding mower this spring, so why not just plant through them?  The bush at the right is green patty pan, and the monster in back is butternut squash.  The acorn squash died as infants, boo hoo.
