For Diana my baby...

(Still) Another fountain that has bit the dust and been repurposed as a planter.  Feel better Di!

Little Miracles

The moon vines began blooming this evening.  If you aren't familiar with this plant, it is in the morning glory family (but doesn't self-sow) and at twilight, the blooms open right before your eyes!
I had forgotten how intoxicating the scent of the flower is; the perfume is used to lure night bugs and moths to pollinate the flower.

Busy days

Here's our last bouquet of glads for the year.  It makes me sad because the last bouquet signals that summer's end is near.  Despite the heat, I love puttering in the garden with the dogs.

Our grandies are going to be over here a lot during the next weeks so I doubt I will post much.  Here is how our house looks at any given moment.  Teddy (white) is completely attached to Helena while Seamus, our black dog, thinks that Miles is the most interesting person he has ever seen.  Miles comment is that we have "a black AND a white dog with little little tails".  He cracks me up.
So stay cool and enjoy the last of the dogs days of summer!
