My Embarrassing Garden

It`s been a beautiful weekend so far and tomorrow supposedly is sunny again.
Most of the mosquitoes are off tormenting someone else today I guess. So it was finally time to deal with my drowned and dead veg garden. As you can see, I didn`t even bother to continue digging in the bricks. Just as well because I`ve had to pull them all out while weeding and have stacked them along the sides for now. But the sunflowers though drooping over, are thriving. You can see here the reason why I haven`t taken any garden pictures this year. A hopeless mess.....

This one stands all by itself over by the fence, gazing off over it, wishing it lived it a much nicer garden........

The bees are still loving the sunflowers. If you click on the pic you can see how he`s coated in pollen.....

The other day I rescued two of the four good pepper plants that seem to be still growing. I`m bringing them in each night because sometimes the weather man warns of possible frost. I don`t know if they`ll grow, but it`s worth a try.......

I tied the sunflowers on poles, but they`re now facing upwards! Still some weeds left to get at tomorrow, but the worst is done. The height of those bricks is how much soil we`ll need to bring in next spring, just in case we have rain every darn day again. Not sure if hubby will find time to attach those bricks or not, but that was my original idea. To the far right, the herbs have survived because it didn`t hold the water there as bad. That tree in the garden may come down too. It`s shading it too much and the leaves are making a mess. Never was a pretty tree. Some marigolds and two peppers fill my lovely garden hehe.

It seems the thrill of blogging left me long ago and I`m afraid anything slightly interesting is in my old old posts. I don`t want to quit all together, I`m hanging in there barely, but it does seem to me that I`m getting really boring. I`m definately boring myself....zzzzzzzzz
Have a lovely weekend wherever you may be.

I know what you mean about the thrill of blogging leaving you but also the reluctance to give it up completely. I've just returned after a long, unscheduled, break, giving it another go.

I'm in a slump too.....but I don't want to quit all together....I would miss all my friends, and my Elvis......I guess as long as we check in once in a while it's ok... and maybe, just maybe winter when we are snowed in, and it's cold outside we will want to blog... hi Elvis, you get cuter every time I check in..... judy

Anyone with sunflowers in the garden has no reason for embarrassment! And, Elvis is sooo pretty!

Your posts, no matter how infrequent, are always cheery. As I've found out myself, there's no point in forcing it; just write when the mood strikes you.

I just found your blog and didn't find it boring at all.

I do know exactly what you mean though, I am finding it harder and harder to think of anything to post on my blog and have often thought about giving it up but somehow something stops me.
