I almost can’t stand to go outside. The yellow flies are horrific. If you don’t know about these terrible insects, you are lucky. They bite something awful and the bite swells up and itches like crazy.
I did go out to get these awesome garden pictures and yes I get bit at least 4 times. OUch. I don’t have many flowers blooming at the moment except for the knockout roses.
These little green spiders just love knock-out roses.
Yes, as you can see it is raining again. Our yard is starting to look like a jungle. I would rather have that than a drought. So, I will stop complaining.
The wild blackberries are turning. This is where I get bit several times by those horrible yellow flies.
These are growing in a log pile. Mr. U was back there with me and kept reminding me, “watch out for snakes” thanks Mr. U
I tried a few while I was back there. Yummy
Remember the first time I showed you the grapes? Mid April they looked like this
Well, look at them now.
These are purple grapes. I know that fox (I showed you last Sunday) is checking them out and look what else I found up around the grapes and the blackberries.
Do you know what that is? Deer poop. Looks like at least one has been up eating blackberries. I don’t know if they like grapes? I hope not.
I am getting bit like crazy, so I am scurrying around to take a few more shots. Here is a neon blue dragonfly
You know if I would get some batteries for my real camera, I could get some better shots for me and you. Maybe, I will get to that this week.
Did I mention Mr. Understanding was out back with me. He had a present for me. Look how awesome
It doesn’t take much to make me happy. Aren’t those the best flag holders you have ever seen. I know they are just iron pipes, but the color and the rust. I love it. Wouldn’t a little plant look cute in one of them? You might see these again. Just saying. Mr. U said he didn’t realize he had brought me a gift. I think he was going to drop these in his recycling pile. I am going to think he brought them home special for me. He is just shaking his head. He is so understanding.
Here are a couple more pics from today’s walk through the garden
Ok, I gotta go scratch my yellow fly bites. Enjoy the day.
