sorry, my garden's just so big...

A fantastic amount of rain has been gifted to the area, causing all the plants to become saturated with bold shades of green. The grass grows ten inches a day! (I didn't measure I'm just sayin'...)

I think only lizards live here.

it's..... really hot outside.

I mean, it's really, really hot outside. Like fire.
But my flowers are blooming.The last hurrah of my oregano plant.

The roses are for some reason preferring to grow on only one side of their container. Attempts to wrangle them closer to the center were thwarted by a good effort on their part to stay put exactly where they are.

A lily bloomed without my knowledge. But to be fair I wasn't paying attention.

Big Leaves

My philodendron has grown to enormous proportions despite the fact that it was never properly planted and was cut in half by a misjudged landscaping accident.
And now it's trying to reproduce.

Spring into summer

Onions in Bloom.

Slugs in slime...

Beetles in the pool.

Cucumbers not fruiting properly... (damn it.)
