We planted our flower garden late, halfway through July. At the time I wondered if it wasn’t a little bit foolish.
Today I am so very glad we just did it. Every morning the kids want to run out to see what new things might be blooming. The sparrows are regular visitors at the feeder. We have bees, butterflies, all sorts of insects. I even spied a hummingbird the other day, though sadly the kids didn’t see it.
Cosmos, zinnias, marigolds, morning glories. And little white flowers I can’t identify.
Glorious even before they bloom.
Dom says when he leaves they are looking across the street and when he comes homes they are peering over the roof.
I hope they bloom before it freezes.
