Garden Photos

Here's another attempt to distract. Garden photos! Here is a hydrangea, Nikko blue. This is the only one that looks good. The others are spindly, light green and generally pathetic looking. We're in a serious drought situation around here, so it's tough keeping these guys alive.

Here's a porch view, with my knittin' swing. I only planted one nasturtium basket, the rest are all marigolds, and of course the nasturtium is thriving and the marigolds are just doing okay. . .

Finally, the maters. It has been about 5 years since I've had a successful crop. My housesitter came by yesterday and I gave her all the watering instructions for next week and had to introduce her to THIS FELLA, the green hornworm, the bane of my tomato-loving existence. I hope she has the nerve to pick them off and squish them. My 5 yo gets a kick out of it.

We're leaving for the big family vacation at the beach tomorrow morning, and I don't have a laptop or any computer access all week. I'm taking the Charlotte's Web shawl as my primary knitting project, some socks as a back up. The sewing machines are away at the spa for some much needed R & R. When I get back the kids are in camp all week, so I have *sewing camp* planned for me. Can't wait. . .
