Garden house porch
The sweet potato vine that ate the world and volunteer tomato plants from the compost pile in the background.
A jumble of old fashioned flowers at the garden fence.
In an attempt to discourage the crows from completely depriving us of the last of our tomato crop, John, Blake and I constructed this decidedly unoriginal scarecrow. Surprisingly, it has worked so far. Poor Poppy is certainly a believer........she has barked her poor head off at the thing.
Have you ever seen a running fern? For a couple of years after we moved here, this vine kept popping up out of the miniature gardenias. After pulling it up for the first two years, I finally took notice of it last year and realized it looked like a fern! I have since provided it with a small trellis and it has flourished for the last two summers.
This is Jackson with his teacher. He is really growing up and has quite the personality. He started 3 year old preschool today and he was really looking forward to it.............can you tell from that look???
Did I mention that it's a dog's life around here?
Naps on the backporch swing.
The sweet snore of these old doggies.
Fresh eggs.....and there were two yesterday morning.....we definitely have two layers.
