Sunday photos

Some more photos from today.

Overall view of the veggie garden.
Phlox, coneflower and black-eyed susans.
A particularly fun phlox with the miscanthus.
Pretty sure this guy is a red-spotted purple.

Saturday harvest

Photos from around the yard today.

Pumpkin blossom
Lots of sunflowers, some of which are confused as to where the sun is
Lots of veggies
I weighed them all. Notes are in a paper journal, but I had enough cucumbers to put up 3 jars of pickles and still have plenty of leftovers.
Happy hounds in their favorite shady spot
Lucky dog is a sleepy dog

July roundup

Our lavender patch was lovely this year. Also, there's G looking all grown up.
G in our Annabelle hydrangeas. He's 4' 4", so they're pretty tall.
Honeybee on native milkweed
Our new native redbud
And our new native musclewood.
Sunflowers facing west in the afternoon.
Our black-eyed susans are starting to bloom. Native echinacea behind it in full throttle with the remains of salvia out front.
I just happened to snap this photo of a bumblebee just starting to take off. 
Here he is working on another coneflower

Garage bench

Finally got around to installing the pegboard. If you remember the before:

Not so great, right? So we removed the post in the center and I went out and got a 4' square sheet of pegboard, plus a basic kit of hooks. Everything else that had been there went in the trash.

We now have an actual cleared work space! I also relocated a bin of spare soccer equipment so our yard waste bins have a home now.
