A few photos from my mid-summer garden: verbena, crepe myrtle, Rose of Sharon, black-eyed susan, tomato plant, and birdies. Post may contain affiliate links.
I thought I would open up with some birdies on my bird feeder. After battling squirrels and raccoons for years, we finally settled on this pole model from Wild Birds Unlimited. It allows us to have two feeders and a suet feeder and the squirrels and the raccoons can't get to any of it!
It seems like it's feast or famine around here when it comes to rain. A couple of weeks ago, I was complaining about having to put my sprinkler out every couple of days because it was 97 degrees and no rain in sight. Well, last week, I think it rained every day! We got over 5 inches of rain. When it wasn't raining, it was coolish and cloudy.
The black-eyed susans are getting ready to open up. See the money plant in the background?
My Rose of Sharon's are just loaded with blooms. I have a row of these lining both sides of my backyard.
With our CSA giving us more vegetables that we know what to do with, we do try to have one or two cherry tomato plants. This one has shot up with all the rain!
