Let the SUMMER GARDEN commence!
It's amazing. I GREW these!!
I picked up a few new foxglove and delphinium. I keep saying to my farmer's market flower guy, George, "I don't have any more room in my garden!" And he says, "You said that last week!" So no, I didn't actually grow these, but they are now a part of my garden and a part of my soul, so I thought I would share!
I just wanted to add this in because I love this flower, and I love that the iPhone 5S was able to take such a gorgeous picture!
I bought an egg sack of Praying Mantids at the farmer's market (no, not Mantis, which refers to a specific genus - I had to Google that!) - they hatched in their container in a couple of weeks, and I put them out in my garden to catch their dinner (bugs!)
Last year, after I put them in the garden, I never saw them again, except that I saw a 3-4 inch long praying mantid in the fall after he had been eating all summer. I jumped back! But this year I found a baby a couple days after I let them free!
Do you see him? (or her)
What did you grow in your garden this week?
Peace. Love. Serene.
