How Does Your Garden Grow?

 Another back to front story.

After trying all week, I finally got a picture of Candy, the itty bitty, bunny. Too bad the photo had to be taken through the screen.

After some storms, a gorgeous sunset

A dragonfly came in for a landing.

Giant milkweed plants looking like something out of Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea or Lost in Space

The only birds I've seen in the yard since the bird feeders were taken down.

A weed in the flower box

Dedo keeping cool

Sgraggly looking petunias

Morning glories starting to bloom out front


A cucumber deciding to climb on its neighbor's pole

Cucumbers reaching for the sky

The tomato is starting to turn red.

Sad view without the bird feeder and birds

Something got at the petunias. Maybe slugs as it's been so wet and humid

A dusting of food grade diatomaceous earth to keep the bugs and slugs away from the plants. The food grade DE is safe for humans and pets.

A light breeze and the sound of the new wind chimes and traffic

How does your garden grow?


  1. Beautiful. Here it´s just growing and growing and keeping being green! Some seems to be oat grass or such - in the city!

  2. Your garden is looking good. Nice to see the tiny bunny. My balcony is flourishing, lots of flowers, wild flowers and unknowns growing there. Have a great day, Valerie

  3. I'm not particularly fond of wind chimes but that one sounds quite lovely! :D

    1. The windchime is musically tuned to the key of E (according to the box)

  4. That's a shame about the birds. I'm impressed with your milkweed. Wow!

  5. The garden is looking wonderful CJ. I think the plants are loving the rain and then the heat. And I had to laugh at your latest bird visitors. It certainly has been the perfect weather for them. Happy new week. Hope its been a nice weekend.

    1. Great weekend. We hung out in the sun room and watched movies

  6. Everything looks GREAT! I love chimes A LOT! We have a total of four so far outside our house! lol

  7. What happened to the bird feeder? Did I miss it? I have 11 wind chimes on my front porch, and three are set in different keys. They are much more melodic than the other clunky wind chimes. Yours sounds a bit like one set I have.

    Loved the bunny photo.

    1. From Mass(achusetts) Wildlife: An illness is impacting birds in certain parts of the country.(first seen spreading in the mid-Atlantic states) As a precautionary measure, MassWildlife is urging the public to report observations of dead birds and stop using bird feeders at this time.

  8. That is a very nice sunset...
    I enjoyed seeing all of your photographs.

    All the best Jan

  9. Your gardens are looking good. The bunny is adorable.

  10. I love your chimes! Your garden is looking beautiful! How come no more bird feeder? I'm working backwards in your posts, so hopefully I will find out soon! Love your little bunny! Big Hugs!
