White, purple, pink, it's all blooming right now and all lovely. The white lavender smells yummy, like honey. There was a lavender festival in Athol last weekend, and once again I missed it. I will have to go next year...
We picked up Wheat, as named by nephew, yesterday, and walked home with him tucked into my shirt. Wheat doesn't quite fit him, so we're considering the name Indy. He's the runt of the litter, and he has an independent streak. His mama disappeared around the same time as Kiki. Indy is Kiki's nephew, maybe that is why Rusty is tolerating him so well. They'll be best friends in no time, and keep each other warm this winter.
Rain!Amazingly, it did rain, and maybe it isn't so surprising since Slammy and best friend are at camp. Doesn't it always rain at camp? It seems to be pretty much guaranteed.
Vegie deliteI had the first baby zucchini. I figured out they need a lot more water than they were getting. The onions and potatoes are blooming. I don't think that's a good thing for the onions, I'll have to remove those pretty blossoms.
Speaking of pretty blossoms...
Campanula rotundifolia - Harebell
Trifolium pratense - Red clover
Monarda didyma - Bee balm
Linaria vulgaris - Dalmation Toadflax (a noxious weed, but pretty)The sun has come out of the clouds. It's 67 degrees at 1:30 pm.
