Pumpkin Plants and Flowers!
I planted 4 pumpkin seeds at the end of my flower bed. Knowing full well what could happen, and it is happening! They’re taking over my yard area in the back. Okey, so I don’t need to mow there!! I hope I get a few pumpkins for decorating. We had so much rain, that I got the seeds in a little late. In fact everything I planted was a little late. If I don’t get any pumpkins, I’ll re-try next year.
Here’s more pictures of some flowers.
My header picture was taken the same day as these this week. The lilies in my header were transplanted in the 1970’s from my mothers house. So they’re very old! They get really tall, and I almost have to be on the ground looking up to take a picture of them.
One lone sunflower seed grew! Just getting ready to open up!
The day lilies will soon be done. They’re so pretty too and easy keepers!
I’m going to be traveling a few days. On my way to Minneapolis tomorrow Saturday morning to attend a wedding of a great nephew in the afternoon. Minneapolis is a good 4 hour drive from here. Steve is staying home because of farm work needing to be done. Since he won’t be with, after the wedding I am going to drive to Stephani’s in SW Minnesota. Spose that’s another 5 hours from where the wedding is. I’m going to stay with her until Tuesday. I’ve been bad, and haven’t been there all summer. So really need to spend some time with her and Cullen. Steph is taking Monday off work, so we’ll be in Sioux Falls SD most of the day. Gotta shop you know!
Have a great day! jo
