This year is different. Come peep through the fence...
the mystery vine keeps growing and seems determined to reach every corner before the first frost...
there are at least four mystery melons that look like watermelons. Poppy says these are citron melons?? Remember all the pretty citron melon seeds, and the preserves, a few years ago???
and the zinnias keep blooming and here late in the season one gomphrena plant has volunteered and come up, probably from a tiny seed left in the soil last year. You can see it there in the center back with the little purple blooms.
This little garden has taken on a life of it's own and I love it!
Even the collards are living...that's shocking!
and the stir-fry broccoli plants and marigolds look healthy...
We're not getting lots of vegetables, just peppers and okra, but that's okay. I like the pretty part..
okay, I'm sure you've seen and heard enough about the garden.
So, here's something cute to share with you!
Poppy was looking for one of his old yearbooks. He wanted to show me a cute little girl that used to flirt with him in seventh grade. Well, here's what he found...
A card he made for his mom on Mother's Day. Poppy says he remembers his mom laughing because of his spelling, "pitcher". How could any mom have kept from laughing. It's so funny!
I've sure she told Poppy how much she appreciated the card. She loved all her children, very much! Poppy seems to have turned out pretty normal to me. :)
old report cards. He made good grades too!
Better get busy. I just may go pick up a couple of fish plates for supper. Anything to get out of cooking once in a while!! :)
