It’s past mid-summer, the flowers seem to be reaching their peak, and we’re harvesting more vegetables. Luke is especially excited about the green beans (me too)! Soon we’ll have tomatoes, cucumbers, sweet peppers and carrots as well.
I’m amazed at times by all the different colors of daylilies we have here:
Even though our cat Samantha can’t really see them now, I still planted some zinnias in the flower boxes outside her window. You can’t see her bed in there, but she sleeps in it between the flowers on her wide windowsill. Did you see our post yesterday showing her new outside adventures? On day three of going out, she didn’t even eat so much grass that she got sick – either she’s learning her lesson or her system is adjusting to the new addition to her diet!
I was trying to capture the water droplets all over the garden the other morning as the sun came out after some rain. Even though I didn’t accomplish that, I got a rainbow of sorts there.
Here is our mystery flower for the week. I wondered if this is some kind of lily, but the leaves and the way the blossoms came out of them were more similar to an iris or gladiola. I don’t think they’re in either of those families, but I thought that might be what was coming before they blossomed. Whatever they are, they are really cool!
In further mystery, we are always finding interesting things around the property and in our woods here. You may have seen our wagon wheel against the barn, and my bottle collection (which continues to grow). Luke can’t seem to figure out what this is, and we’re not sure either!
We hope you are enjoying the winding down of summer and all it brings as well!
We are happy to be joining the Flower Friday blog hop hosted by Da DB Boyz.
