My gardens are doing so well this year! My only problem right now are the Japanese beetles and the deer. I read online that the best way to get rid of those pesky beetles is to pick them off by hand and throw them in a bucket of soapy water. Do not get those beetle traps you see at your home improvement stores. They make things worse by attracting the beetles.
Here is one feasting on one of my Zinnias
Cone flowers are blooming!
I wasn't to sure when I took this picture what it was, then when I loaded the picture on my computer I discovered it was a baby katydid!!!! It was so tiny, just about a inch in length. Please click on the picture to see a bigger view.
One of my new daylilies! I just love this one!
My Hydrangea is blooming! I almost killed this poor thing a couple of years ago with fertilizer. I was trying to change the color to blue with Miracid. I'm so happy that it decided to bloom this year after it's close call. It's a small plant with one bloom but it's doing just fine now. I'm certainly babying this plant now.
And these are very tiny flowers that are blooming on my sedum that I have planted in the cracks of my garden edging. So pretty.
My first green pepper!!! woo hoo!
And my little wren just singing away this morning. He's been very busy building a nest.
And yesterday My daughter, her boyfriend and I went to see the Oscar Meyer Wienermoblie at our local grocery store!! I always wanted to see this when I was a little girl and I finally got to! I got a wiener whistle and a sticker which I will be giving to my granddaughter when I see her in a few weeks. I wish that she lived here so I could have taken her to see the wienermoble.
My daughter sent me this picture the other day of my granddaughter after she opened a package I mailed to her with her pink bird that she requested, that I sent her. The blue one I made and sent to her about a year ago. Now she wants a purple one! hehe I think she loves her birds! I can hardly believe she will be 3 years old in a couple of weeks!
Well that's about all for now I would think! LOL Enjoy the pics!
