Happy August

This is a small sample of some of the things that have collected in the flower bed in front of the house.

Zinnias and Lantana

Butterflies on Oregano

Dried springs of Mint and Pussy Foots are scattered about.

A transplanted Sage bush that has found itself happy.

Purple Hearts and weeds throughout.

Lavender that is coming back around.

And a small hidden statue of St. Francis.

This little space is full and cramped.  I've not given it the attention it deserves because it has been sooo hot.  The weeds are just as happy as the plants.  This little spot is usually humming with activity from all sorts of insects, bees, and butterflies.  It has been rainy and cool this weekend (I'm not complaining) so they critters aren't as abundant today.  This is one of my favorite spots.  I can sit on the front porch and just look and watch and enjoy. 

Hope you are having a good weekend.  Enjoy your Sunday.
