These are the only nasturtiums that that survived the squirrel assault! I'm not sure what happened, but he hasn't been around for awhile. This is the first grey squirrel that I have ever seen in this region. They are not common in the desert. We have prairie dogs that are more like rats or miniature gophers, but no squirrels. I wonder if the grey squirrel was an import.
The Orange Jubilee is full of wasps and bees! They are having a hard time landing as the wind has been blowing pretty hard the past two days.
My Stocks are up and blooming! I didn't plant anything unusual again this year. I never order soon enough and never get to a good nursery to browse. Anyway, I know these will look good throughout the fall, winter and then last until May! I love them because the look and smell so good.
The Yellow Bells are abundant with flowers and are also full of bees, but the wasps didn't seem to take to the Yellows like they did the Orange.
The Petunias are looking good. A couple more weeks and everything will be in full bloom! Sweet peas are about 2 inches high and a few other seeds are sprouting. I'm not sure yet what they are. Remember, I like to be surprised! The winter rye grass will be lush and green by next week---Life is good once again. The weather is perfect, the swing swings nice , and I ordered a month's supply of NutriSystem meals. If I could just lose weight this time...it won't matter to me who is President or how much taxes we will have to pay! Well, I'm going to rethink that one--I don't think skinny would make me like tax increases.
