We had 1.9" rain for the month.
We had 24 days of sun. There were 4 days in the 90's, and 2 nights that dipped into the 30's. Can you say "roller coaster"? The forecast today is upper 80's and sun--a warm ending to an otherwise pretty cool month..
There's flowers galore left, but not much else still growing.
Melons under their plastic tent,basking in the extra warmth--the nights are pretty cold now.
Pretty much the only thing left is flowers.
Another nice surprise--the Zebrina , from seed given to me by my good friend Deb Arnold a couple of years ago, magically appeared scattered around my vegetable garden this summer. It must have lain dormant all of last year. Amazing.
I'll be doing the FINAL post of the year next week--all the harvest totals, etc. We're leaving after that and by the time we get home it will be time for some indoor hibernation.
Now, before you scroll any further----MAMA PEA---there are CRITTER pictures and since I know how you feel about bugs, and such---I wanted to warn you so you can skip the rest of the post!!
First up--a Walking Stick--which I haven't seen since moving to Michigan.....maybe because there are so many trees I don't "notice" them?
Hope you have a wonderful week!
