Other Things in My Garden

I found this leaf-footed bug in my garden the other day hiding on a Morning Glory vine that was growing up some Zinnias. Isn't he cute. He knew I was there and wouldn't smile for the camera.






This is my first little pumpkin of the year. Finally. I have had several that looked like they would make it, but didn't.






These are my sunflowers. I planted them late in the season, so they are just getting their start. Aren't they beautiful. Next year I hope to plant a sunflower forrest for my kids to play in. Won't that be fun?!



I also found this little guy sitting on a morning glory leaf. I'm not sure what he is because I never saw him open his wings.

Hi Kim,

Those are great pictures! You can tell you LOVE your garden...it shines through on your blog! I think we may give the garden thing a try next year!

And one year when Colt was smaller, we had read the book The Sunflower House (I think it was called?) and we planted them in a circle like a playhouse. It was fun! After awhile they got tall and drooped over, but it was fun while it lasted! :)

Good job on your blog! I'll list you on my blogroll.
