yes, it is very blurry, but it is a red dragonfly. she sat very still for awhile, and i’m sure she saw me snapping pictures. after she’d had enough, she buzzed me and took off. amazing!

Mr. Sunshine. Some friends sold their house and bought a fully furnished cabin up north. I helped them move. They said take what you want. I took this handsome terracotta.

tomato #1 of 4, all started from last year’s heirloom seeds — 2nd year I’ve grown tomatoes in a bag of potting soil. It works ok, but not necessary. The ones in the ground are doing just as well.

tomatoes #2 & #3 — in the ground and doing very well. I need better staking. The cages aren’t enough. #4 not shown. I kept it in a pot and it’s languishing.

          My mom used to sing this song to me! Haven’t thought about it in years. Thanks for the suggestion. I’ve got one lined up already for this week, but next Friday I’ll use it. Thanks again, Jim 🙂

    Very nice! Tranquil… bet the birds and bunnies and things like that enjoy it too! Your wild grapes look great- like commercial ones growing wild. The wild grapes I saw in Canada were tiny, purple and rather hard. Technically edible but unless you were a Catbird or waxwing, you wouldn’t WANT to eat them. yours look quite good.

      Thanks, Dave. The critters do love their refuge. The grapes aren’t very big but hopefully will grow bigger?

    It looks lush and happy. There are a lot of ginkos in the city, as they don’t seem to mind the car exhaust. (K)

      ❤ They are ancient beings and have adapted. With the 3 little ones out back and the one in the back yard, I'm building a forest 🙂
