Thought for the weekend


All the uglinesses of the world can best be forgotten

in the beauty of nature!

This Passionvine is a volunteer. Where I had planted it originally, on the opposite side of the yard, it did not want to grow. I guess the roots just keep wandering, looking for that perfect spot.

Passiflora Incense


So now it grows where it not really should grow. There is a Bougainvillea planted to grow over the back porch, and a Dutchman's Pipe vine covers the pergola supplying much-needed shade for the orchids, but who am I to tell the plants where they can or cannot grow.

All is peachy in Myrtle Glen

Checking on the peaches I am hoping the critters will miss them. we ate all the nectarines and are ready for the peaches :)



plump, and fuzzy, and with its golden glow, doesn't it look just peachy? 




What else is growing...
