Flowers do not labor or spin

August 22, 2012

And why do you worry about clothes?  See how the lilies of the field grow.  They do not labor or spin.  Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.  Matthew 6: 28,29

A lot of colors of nasturium blooming in the garden now.

Nasturtium and geranium ‘rozanne.’

Agastache golden jubilee and alyssum carpet of snow.

The Joe Pye Weed was severly tested by the drought.  It is trying to bloom a little now, late in the season.  This is gateway.  Little Joe bloomed a little better.  It looks like the turtlehead flowers will not bloom this summer, due to the drought.

Pole bean flowers.  Green beans hang in the background.  I picked a lot of beans this week and ate some sauteed with onions, corn (from the garden) and rice tonight.

Seedheads on giant sacaton grass.  A man at the Arboretum suggested I get Gilbertson  pvc nestboxes to attract bluebirds.  He said these wooden boxes are just too tempting for the sparrows and finches.

I planted virginia creeper on the back fence, but it may take a while to spread out, so I let the morning glories grow, too, as they come up from last years seeds.

    Great photos of the flowers Kris, especially that last morning glory one…looks almost like a light bulb is on inside the flower. School started up yesterday for our gang…everyone back to CAJ. Lilla busy with volleyball and getting used to HS. Sam getting his AP classes organized. Sky riding his new bike. Very hot and muggy compared to Nojiri or Akagi. God is good. Tim
