Garden

Summer is here in Kansas.
HOT!

Last month I took these pictures of my garden.























We are having 90-100 degree weather and I am watering - a lot! Trying to keep my pretty flowers alive.

You may notice in this picture that I am carrying an umbrella while watering my plants. No, it isn't that I'm worried about the sun. Do you see that little speck beside the tree? I'm being dive bombed by purple martins! I mean they come within a foot and they screach as they swoop at me! It is scarry!


The umbrella protects me from them.


I now not only have dog-phobia ..... I have purple martin phobia too. I think next year we won't put up our purple martin house. We thought we were being so nice providing them with such nice accomodations and what do they do? They hate us! Hope your babies grow up and you all fly away soon!!

Beautiful flowers.

When Bethany would deliver papers over your way, she hated the martins. They were nesting in the eaves of one of the porches she delivered to. They dived at her as well. She ended up carrying an umbrella.

That sweet-looking couple can't be what you're talking about?? I love your garden and pictures--beautiful! How planned or lucky was the Redbird in the one photo?

Oh, Martins also rid your yard and area of many, many mosquitos! Either one attacks too.
