Random Things



My Butterfly bushes have mainly attracted Hummingbirds this year but we finally had a butterfly visit. A Red Admiral, if I'm correct. It didn't stay long but hopefully it will come back.




I love the huge pink blooms on the Butterfly bush and brought some in. They have a delicate scent and actually remind me a lot of Lilacs.


Something else that got brought in.... the first of the cucumbers off that little plant we bought a week or so ago. Also a nice red onion. Yummy salad makings.
 

Not much happening around here. It continues to be hot and there's a heat wave warning for the upcoming weekend. I am trying to water only the 'neediest' plants and will have to watch carefully over the next days. Otherwise it is a good thing to stay in the shade!!

Have a great weekend!

  3. Yes, keep cool!! Just wanted to let you know that we are in Oliver and just picked 86 lbs of cherries for 50 cents a lb.! We saw more than one sign along the highway at that price, south of Oliver. Also saw a sign for 20lb cases for $20.

    1. Thanks for telling me. Now we have to decide if we want to brave the heat.

  4. Those are the most beautiful blooms I have ever seen on a butterfly bush. I have at least four bushes and not one has ever had a bloom that large and beautiful. What am I doing wrong? Those cucumbers and onion look mighty good.

    1. We have 3 regular light purple bushes and one ( the biggest one) is a pink blooming. I'm not sure if it just happened to get better soil or if the pink ones have bigger blooms.
