Well, things are really quiet right now......it's summer and people have other things on their minds....vacations, family reunions, Back to School....and just general summertime events. I walk in the morning, do my exercises for my back (which is getting much better, BTW) and working in the flower and vegetable gardens. Our tomatoes are ripping and we will have an abundance of those as well as cantaloupe's, the bell peppers are sort of crazy this year too. But it's my flowers that bring me the most joy. Here's some photos of my petunias this year....and a photo or two of my Passion Flower vine. I've always loved the Passion Flower. I remember it from my childhood....I was fascinated by them (still am)....so when I found some plants this year, I bought them. In NE the Passion Flower is an annual, but in CA they are a perennial and the vines get really, really big.....ours grew up and over the backyard fence. The Passion Flower itself, only lasts one day, but it sure is a pretty thing.
They cascade down the wall....They aren't just a pretty 'face' either, they smell really good too.
