zinnias

While we’re sweating, the zinnias are in love with this heat.  They’re big, lush and bright, and in their first full flush of blooms. I think maybe they’re trying to outshine the dahlias next door.  And doing a darn good job!

there’s some weird things growing out yonder in the pumpkin patch

I know it’s only the middle of summer, but these gourds were so cool, I just had to show you. Tiptoeing around in the pumpkin patch is like a treasure hunt.  Marilyn and I were so thrilled with this one, we had to pick it.  Maybe we’ll have a pumpkin picking party in the fall.  Whatdaya think?
