When we got back from our camping trip to Keaton Beach, we jumped on the golf cart for a tour of the property.
Al was checking on his garden. Yep….lots more weeds! The tomatoes are doing well, but still green. We have some jalapenos, and green peppers, and he has quite a few cucumbers (pickles as Al calls them).
The peaches had grown a lot and were getting the pretty peach color…however, we had little bites taken out of a lot of them. They didn’t eat the whole peach, just took a bite or two. We know it was the squirrels because we have seen them do it. I grabbed a few that were still on the tree. Darned if I’m going to waste them. I’ll just cut off their bite areas and peel and wash them and I’m eating the rest! Boy are they yummy. I love our peaches and will sure miss them when we leave here.
While we were gone the crape myrtles started blooming and the Mimosa are now in full bloom.
Here are a few photos of the Mimosa trees.
Here are some Lillies that started to bloom while we were gone.
Our Gardenia must have bloomed like crazy while we were gone but mostly what we have left are the brown remains :(
Full moon tonight. It is going to be pretty. We also saw a lot of Fireflies. Before we came here, we hadn’t seen any since we were kids!
We saw our newly fledged Blue Birds. There were 5 of them and we saw the whole family flying around the yard! Hope they will all survive to mate and have more babies!
