Look at it! Isn't it beautiful with all it's dark spots on orange? And look at all those tentacles hanging down. I know they aren't called tenacles, but that's what they look like to me....and they also look like they're wearing shoes. *LOL* It looks like a kind of a fancy looking spider that is getting ready to tap dance.
I also like the water droplets on the lily and I can't wait until the rest of the buds bloom out.
I took a walk farther back in the yard to the vegetable garden and some old sunflower seeds were now about 15 foot tall and resembled sunflower bushes. They come up on one corner of the garden every year on their own...Well, with a little help from the birds that feed on them. Maybe if I'm lucky I'll get a picture of those lovely little yellow birds that feed on the sunflower seeds.
My tomatoes are getting bigger, but I noticed some brown spotches on the leaves. We have had about 4 ripe tomatoes, but they have been very small & deformed...not anything I would proudly photograph.
The red raspberries are beginning to ripen slowly, and I have some yellow crooked neck squash, banana peppers and green peppers that are ready to pick. We have had several messes of the squash that we have given to the neighbors so far.
There is one strange pepper plant that we are trying to identify...it looks like a habinero hot pepper (don't know if that's how it's spelled). I should have taken a picture of it, but I think if one of us just tastes it...we will know! It was mixed up with our banana peppers that we bought from Wal-Mart or maybe Lowes.
Well, that's about it...We were bad and never cleaned the house, but we were bad together. I caught up on reading blogs and Jimmy cut a small hole in the back of one of our out-buildings so the cats, Jybow in particular, would have a safe place to escape the wrath of a thunderstorm...just in case we weren't at home to let her in the house. Heaven forbid that his cat should have to crawl under the building, like the rest of the other six cats.
Have a nice weekend if I don't see or hear from you...And I'll be back on Monday if not before.
