Look what I found in the mud pit left behind in the front yard by the deluge of rain we've been having. Impatiens. I haven't planted any in years but they still seem to pop up here and there.
These showed up in the remains of a broken pot a few days ago. I don't think they got the message that summer is almost over.
The hydrangeas got the message. They are a sorry sight. All this rain has beat them to the ground poor things.
The mushrooms are still going strong. Look what popped up on a table I have on my deck. Itty bitty mushrooms. I keep meaning to go out and get photos of all the crazy ones we have out in the woods but it's still too hot, muggy and buggy out there. It was almost 90 yesterday with more storms again. Ugh.
Speaking of bugs, my kale was doing great under a net up on the deck and then one day....gone. I cut it back after something got under the net and ate every darn leaf.
In other gardening news, here are my carts-now empty. The Mister got rid of the plants after they turned into a pitiful moldy mess. It was a bust of a year I'm afraid. $300 worth of carts for about $5 worth of veggies. It turns out the sun wasn't the issue-the heat and the bugs were.
