More Rain & Thunder On Saturday Morning

Another night and morning with Thunderstorms came through North Texas, today. Kevin and I can’t really do anything, we planned for the backyard, this weekend. But the weather didn’t stop me to shoot more photos of the moisture, that was still left on the plants in frontyard and the backyard.

Blooms In The Greenhouse

Kevin, Sara and I picked up some blooming perennials from the local nursery. We got more catnip for Joshua and Chewbacca. And for the future swallowtail butterflies, we’ve got fennel plants. In the afternoon Sara helped me get the plants in the greenhouse. Her and I also put some more flower seeds in the raised bed garden. In the evening, Sara and I cooked some hummingbird nectar. She can’t wait for her flower garden to grow and the hummingbirds to visit the backyard.

The Colony Community Garden In Early October 2018

After over three months, I finally came back to the Community Garden. Christi took good care of the garden, while I was out due to sickness. But she had a lot of work to keep up with the six beds. After my tomato plants quit producing (we had a good harvest this Summer) and the tomatillos were a bust, she pulled them all out. Now, the pepper plants and the basil can breath, after all the weeds under the tomatoes are gone as well.

This afternoon I was in the garden, pulled some weeds and noticed a big fire ant hill in my front raised bed. Oh boy! I have to get rid of these ants first, before I can plug the weeds out in that area. Kevin, Sara and I went back over this evening. While Kevin was treating the ant hill, Sara and I looked at the plants and captured some photos in the garden.
