This and That on Friday...

Well...another week gone by.
This year, is flying.

We haven't had any real rain, for over a week.
I'm having to water...yes, water.
It's pretty amazing how fast things can dry out.

But, the creek is still flowing.

It comes across the cart path here, and the path gets really slippery.
But, it sounds nice. Here, and the waterfall, further down.

Kids have built another place for the water to make noise.

The Mexican Hats are beginning to take off.

And, the grasses.
I'm not a fan of Johnson Grass, unless it's on the other side
of Elli's Meadow. The seed heads are really pretty.
Especially, backlit with the sun.  

I ran up to our local garden/feedstore the other day,
for a few more plants. (can you have too many plants?)
 And, there looking like some
strange thing peeking at me, was this
Giant Silk Moth...
Antheraea polyphemus.
Really cool...and, about six inches across.

Never know what you'll find, at the garden center.

That's about all from here. Watering and weeding
have taken up the week.
And, I do believe Summer may be here.

Have a great weekend.

Happy Gardening...


  1. I would love to have the sound of a waterfall within earshot. And those Mexican Hats are so fun. And wow, that is one large moth! Spending time in the garden is one of my favorite ways to spend the day!!

  2. How peaceful and relaxing... The 4th image from the top is so lovely! Have a great summer, Linda!

  3. The creek is beautiful! Love the Mexican Hats photo. Such fun happy plants!
