Oh beautiful moon, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways.. my DIL got this photo night before last, the moon wasn't totally full, but when it's like this you get to see more craters on the bottom. Isn't this gorgeous? She uses a Nikon PowerShot SX50 HS.
We have a section of the garden that we call "no man's land" - it's beyond the deck and was a constant source of annoyance - all that grew there were insidious weeds, the kind that you could NOT pull out, big leafy awful weeds. We would dig them up and it would be DIRT.. and then in the blink of an eye there would be more BIG ugly weeds. For years I would implore my husband to put down rocks or more deck or something. It never happened.. but our wonderful daughter-in-law Kristi has finally fixed it and it's gorgeous! She dug the weeds, laid down weed barrier fabric, drove our big farm truck to the rock place and picked out a ton of some really pretty Montana rainbow colored rock and put it down and spread it out. Isn't it wonderful??? Buddy is smelling it and checking it out.
I just love all the different colors in the rock.
Kristi got this plant to keep the mosquitoes away, it's called a Citronella plant and even smells lemony. It's gotten huge and is blooming with these pretty lemon-scented flowers!
Our Crocosmia "Lucifer" is blooming.. I had wanted these plants for years and finally have them going and I love them!
Do you have these flowers where you live? They are really popular at the beaches along the Oregon coast.
Last night Kristi called us out to see the Planetary Convergence of Jupiter and Venus. Here is my not-that-great photo of the event.
After my shot of the planets, I got this one of the fuller moon with my pocket sized LUMIX DMC-ZS40 camera.
We are getting excited about the 4th of July - we'll have a BBQ with family after watching the fun Corbett parade with all kinds of tractors, horses, floats, kids and ponies. I'll share some photos after the event. I'm off to the pool soon. I hope you're having a wonderful day. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
