Middle of the Week......
It was such a wonderful surprise to see this bloom last evening high on the top of the trellis. I thought that all I was ever to have in colors was pink and white. You can see all the white buds that are yet to open. When I go outside this morning I bet they will be partially open. When I investigated further in the planter below there are about six different vine stems going out of the pot. The interesting thing is that they are intertwined on each other so it made it look like only two vines were growing up the trellis. I really would like to be surprised with one more color of bloom. We will see what happens.
I didn't play acrobat on the saw horse this time but just used the zoom on the camera to get a close up shot. I do intend to take the step ladder next to the house out there today as I will be needing it for apple picking anyway. Then I can use it to take higher elevation photos.
The reason I was out to the shed last evening was the continual rains have caused most of my zinnas to lean and fall to the ground. I had to get some of my smaller cheap fence posts and tie up most of them. I don't know if the stems with blooms will turn back up to the light but I hope so. This photo was taken a few days ago when a fritillary was out feeding on the coneflowers and zinnias. I really want the zinnias to be standing and also if the butterflies keep coming I want to not have to lay on the ground to take their picture.
The nail keg is on its way to being stored in the garden shed. I have decided to banish everything that sits on my porch next to the door and start over with the entryway display. I haven't removed everything yet but I am working at it as I grab something on my way by each time to put it away and out of sight. The begonia doesn't fit in the keg and I will hang the flowers back up on the hook when I take the keg away from the bench.
I hope all is well with all of you my blogging friends and thanks for stopping by today.
