These are sunflowers just getting started. The plants in the background are zinnias.
My tomato plants are starting to get big and should have buds on them very soon.
And we have cucumbers on the vine already.
This is called a society garlic. It smells like garlic when you brush against it so it helps keep animals out of the garden.
And here are some of the potted day lilies that we have been weeding. Those are loquat trees in the background.
As you know there is only one thing that really scares me and they love to live in the garden. Growing up in the South like I did, I know what the web looks and feels like. And these eggs were a dead giveaway.
Most of the time, they are timid and not at all aggressive but when they have eggs watch out.
When I poked the eggs with a stick, she came out and stood her ground to protect them.
Ok does anyone not know what kind of spider this is? In case you don't know it is a black widow and capable of killing you. And did you know that they eat the males which is how I knew this was a female.
The first three day lily varieties are blooming. These are called #1 Pink, Apricot Cream and Plum Crazy.
I thought it was best to end on a positive note.
Have a wonderful day,
