Lots of requests from my last post to see my pretty little purple, uh, pansies.
There they are just scattered around the garden where anyone can see them.
I'm not shy to show them off.
My hollyhocks a.k.a. "holy hecks" are also in full bloom.
Even the dark purple ones that I thought were eaten by a back hoe have recovered.
This is the miracle crop. Our pie cherry tree produces plenty of fruit almost every year.
And every year the robins and all their friends clear out every last cherry
before they are even ripe. But not this year. The mild wet spring produced
a bumper crop of fruit. Too many for the birds to get, even though they
emptied the top branches and were doing their best to get the rest.
DH is quite the domestic guy. He loves cherry pie and when he had summers off from
teaching and I was still working full time, he bottled the fruit
as long as I would make the pies. You've gotta go with what your good at.
So now I've shown you my purple pansies. Hope you're not too disappointed.
