This moonflower opened in less than two minutes. Unfortunately I didn’t record it because I didn’t realize it would open so fast. I went around to the back of the flowerbed to take a picture of the squash and when I came back, it was open.
All three squash plants are putting out a second round of flowers. They are also struggling with a gray fungus on the leaves. I’ve sprayed the plant with dish soap and water two days in a row and the fungus seems to be going away. As we have no bees, if these flowers open, I’ll have to hand-pollinate them.
If not for this . . .
. . . I would have walked into this.
Gorgeous wildflowers. I didn’t pick any.
An honest-to-goodness fairy ring that goes all the way around the cedar tree.
With and without flash
Something took a big bite out of this one
The house next door is empty, and the back yard has gone wild and witchy, and I hope it stays that way.
