Apologies for pause in posting while I’ve been writing and summering.
Today is brutally hot here in Virginia again. I guess I’ll grow accustomed to the oppressive heat eventually. I maintain, I’d rather be housebound due to a proper snowstorm than due to heat. The sunshine is such a tease.
Wandering the yard with the hose, I ran into a lovely little blue tailed lizard.
He was too fast for me to capture a picture. If you click on this one, you will learn a bit about him from the source website of this pic. He was so skinkin’ cute! (I had to)
The following are my own pictures of little beauties I grew:
I want to eat this morning glory, it is so delicate and beautiful.
Slowly, a vining begins to establish itself.
I have been trying to grow this Japanese maple for years. My father gave me a sapling from my childhood home in Connecticut.
Can’t remember the name of this decorative grass flowering thing. A friend had too much in her yard and shared about four or five of them with me.
Crepe Myrtles are busting out everywhere here. They smell like cinnamon Necco Wafers. I have some saplings of purple from the same friend who gave me the grasses above, I can’t wait until they bloom. In the meantime, the whites of my established trees are really gorgeous, too.
Thanks for stopping by in my little corner of the world.
