Have you ever seen the kudzu bloom? In the late days of summer, the vine on the back fence blooms in purples and reds.

Plants That Make Me Itch

7 Aug

Poison ivy plant

Just looking at this poison ivy makes me itch!

It took me a long time to figure out that it was this plant that makes me break out in a rash because it doesn’t look like ivy nor does it look poisonous (so healthy and green!).

Remember: Leaves of three, let them be.

Every Day a Bloom

5 Aug

Daylily dew

Looking back over the 228 pictures I’ve posted on my blog this year, I can’t help but notice quite a few have been taken on my morning walk in the garden.

I grab a cup of coffee soon after the sun comes up and head out with the dogs and cats at my heels to see what’s new.

Most days I just have my iPhone4 with me as I think there’s nothing to photograph today that’s any different than yesterday (otherwise I’d have grabbed the Nikon). But as you’ve seen, I usually find something that catches my eye and I snap a photo to remind me of that day in the garden.

I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing my daily photo half as much as I’ve enjoyed sharing them with you. Have a beautiful morning!
