This gladiolus just
opened this week in the front yard.
The silk tree near
the driveway is still covered in flowers.
It was warm but not hot this week. There are lots of
red tomatoes in the patio planter now, and the melons are starting to get
big on the hill. The fruit trees are all done for the season; there
were lots of peaches but just a few apricots.
This is the biggest
melon; there are several others in the lower part of the bed. There are
also a bunch of round cucumbers ripe now.
The belladonna lily
in the bed near the roses is very pretty right now.
The usual spots
The wisteria is sending
out lots of tendrils but there's not really anything for them to attach
The aloes in this bed
are almost closed up from lack of water.
The belladonna lily is
next to the grape vine.
The sprinklers for this
bed got turned off somehow; now they're back on and running once a week.
This bed is due for
some water; I've been running the soaker hose every other week.
I didn't find any
apricots on the tree on the left, but it's a little hard to access.
