We've had lots of help keeping those pesky insects out of the garden...help from the lizard who lived under the squash vines and
then two of these large black and yellow garden spiders built their webs in the tomato vines. When I reached around to take a picture of her back side, she disappeared. Twice I've caught my hair in her web while reaching in to pick the little sun gold tomatoes...
The Gomphrena or Globe amaranth has bloomed and bloomed. I've cut just a few stems and hung them to dry.
there were supposed to be light pink and red too...
anyway, I'm happy with these. Maybe there will be a garden next year and I will try again.
Have you started dreaming about next year's garden yet? I have. Yes, next year I want a row each of the large zinnias, cosmos, Gomphrena, sunflowers, and hollyhocks.
Gosh, Poppy may have to add on to the little garden fence. That should go over big! Maybe I will settle for half a row of each.
