Things are starting to go down-hill as we reach the middle of August, but I think I still managed to get some great pictures to share with you this week.
Our Fall Bearing raspberries (sometimes called Everbearing) are starting to produce well this week. Unfortunately we don’t have enough plants to produce enough berries for a raspberry pie! Well…maybe we would if I stopped snacking on them every time I’m out in the garden. But then, I’m sure the robins would get anything I don’t eat!
We had a friendly green grasshopper hanging out (hiding?) on the celosia earlier this week. If you want to see something pretty neat, click on the picture to get the full-size photo and check out his googly eyes!
The Celosia is finally starting to bloom. This is just the beginning. These flowers should get much bigger and quite stunning in another couple weeks. I’ll keep you posted.
The radishes we planted on Tuesday are starting to come up. I love radishes! They are as close to instant gratification as a gardener can get!
The Pampas grass that is our entryway windbreak started flowering this week. It is gigantic!
Our huge prostrate rosemary plant is blooming. Rosemary blooms are a relatively uncommon occurrence, so we’re excited to see them.
Have a great weekend!
