Middle of the Week.....

 Growing morning glories in the tomato patch really does work well. They come up volunteer each spring and they don't hinder the growth of the tomatoes. 

The zinnia patch is maturing and a lot of the shorter plants are catching up in height. The glads on the left side of the photo are shooting up stems of buds

The dahlia plant puts out blooms that seem to get bigger than ever as they mature. I like the red color of this one and the height of them is going to be tall. 

When I was a kid on the farm my mom would plant them in the fence row next to the vegetable garden. I remember them being tall with lots of brown blooms. That memory is from sixty years ago on the farm in southern Iowa.

My camera would not pick up the reddish cast that the moon was displaying. It was fun to be out  in the late evening to take shots. Surprisingly people were out walking their dogs as the weather had cooled down.  It is always interesting the size of the dog and the size of the dog walker.  Big men sometimes are walking their little dog. 

These lilies are sure lasting a long time with their blooming period. I like that they last so long.  We are having a hotter day today and the whole week is suppose to get worse. I have a yard that needs to be mowed but he doesn't come until Friday.  I guess I should be glad that is green even though it is thin.  Thanks for stopping by today.

Very cool Moon pic. At least you can capture the craters. My pictures only look like yellow dots in the black sky.

Such pretty flowers and those Zinnias will be in full bloom before long! I mowed has been an easy mowing summer so far:)
