A Look Out Back

Turr Tull is enjoying a hibiscus blossom. See how muddy he is? I think he has dug under the fence and got into the neighbor's flower beds. Hope he doesn't fall into their swimming pool! I guess we will have to block off the entrance to his hole and make a raised area for him. If he fell into the pool, he wouldn't be able to get out.


Strange happenings in my garden again! Sweet peas are growing all through out my Vinca beds. They are about 4 inches high. I guess they are leftover seeds from the fall plantings.They won't be able to take the heat much longer--although they look pretty good right now.


Vincas will go all summer long, and look great no matter how hot it gets. The coreopsis come up every year-- just where I don't want them, of course! The only excitement around here in the summer is seeing what plants haven't fried!

I have surrendered! The last of the petunias are gone....I never have had cosmos and I can't get the vincas to "bush."

Love these photos of the flowers! Mr. Tull is awesome! Although I think I might take him to a car wash and send him through. That would ensure a good wash and buff! :o)

Ceekay- I still have petunias that are looking good!
Suzanne- Great idea!

I love all these colors blooming all together like this! So sorry to hear how exciting the summers are there!!! LOL. I know I keep trying to think of a COLD place to visit for summer vacation! Turr is cute, even with mud on him!!!

I sincerely wish to adopt Mr. Tull... but I'm not sure how the two cats and the pug dog would adjust...

Great pics!
