Flowers

Finally the Marigolds and the Salvia Victoria Blue are blooming in the little garden out front.  The squirrels like to eat the flowers…or shred them.

Yellow,red and blue.  I like those colors together in a garden.

I liked the Salvia I had last year better, she was called Lady in Red.  She was a sprawly Salvia that reseeded readily in that spot throughout the summer.  Oh well it is what it is and in six more weeks we will have a frost.

Today Far Guy said “ summer is half over.” 

We have a family of rabbits, four or five of them hanging out together…running every which way when they see you.  We also have one very obnoxious Chippy that keeps Chance entertained. 

We have a heat wave headed our way…I hope you stay cool!  Chance will only get his rides at night…no more trips to town for him until it cools off.

  2. Wow, can't believe Summer is half over. I feel for Chance with the chipmunk that harasses him. I think a cat finally got the one that was digging up my garden. Please keep cool and safe during the upcoming heat wave.

  3. Midway to the fall equinox is on August 1, so I'm holding out saying it's half over until we get there. :-)

  5. Yup it appears the heat is going to be the whole country. Started here yesterday with some seriously awful storms NE of us and one thwap of thunder that made us all jump. Stay cool and stay safe.

  8. We got rain last night! YAY! Our heat wave is broken! Of course, now that means it's heading toward the rest of the USA, but three weeks of high heat is enough here. I hope yours doesn't last as long.

  9. We're hunkering down for the heat wave here, too. I cooked ahead of time so I don't have to cook in the heat. Fun to see the color in your garden. Stay cool!

  12. I see the wildflowers behind Chance are doing great. I use to plant marigolds every year. I don't know why I don't now. Your flowers have lots of buds to bloom yet.

  14. I love blue and yellow together. I put those same marigolds in with my tomato plants. I have that blue salvia too but it isn't doing as well this year as it did last year.

  15. Our summer has just started, it's been a very, very late summer. So, now that I'm pumped to experience some really nice weather (it's here today), I'm in no mood to hear, "summer's half over"!

  16. I can see you going by and checking each plant everyday! I do the same thing.

  17. I like that blue Salvia. Don't know why I didn't get any this year. We are supposed to get hot weather in the near future too. So far we have hardly had to use the A/C ( window unit only and that's in the bedroom).

  19. For educators, summer is half over, and then we remember we are retired, and summer goes on and on.
