Celebrate July 4th

Happy Independence Day!

Today looks as though Mother Nature may give us a display of her "fireworks" later on in the day as it is warm and muggy this morning.

I've just come back from a walk through the garden and this morning, several of the oriental lillies are blooming, some of the Rudbeckia are beginning to bloom and the Stella d'Oros are in full bloom.

Freddie the Frog seems to have flown the coop as I haven't seen him in a couple of days. Maybe the weasel got hold of him - who knows. Copper Charlie will just have to hold the fort down til Freddie (or Fredrika) returns.

In celebration of our nation's birthday, here is a bouquet I just picked from my garden!

I just posted a picture of my tomato bed contraption that I built. You requested a picture when I was able to get one. As I'm new to blogging, I'm not sure if it posts instantly or not, but it's there if you care to take a look.

That looks great! It looks like it will serve as a great cold frame in the spring, as well.
