A warm and sunny day. Watching a busy bee on Echinacea. See his saddle bags filled with pollen?
Not too many days like this left this summer. Too hot for Ruby!
The nights are getting so cool. I’m going to have to bring this monster in… but where on earth will it go…
and these babies?? In early summer we had a wicked hail storm and I lost most of the leaves on these Bananas. They were ripped to shreds and pitted where they had been hit with the hail!! I didn’t expect them to replenish themselves into such enormous plants. I bought the plants as an experiment, see how they would hold up. Lesson learned. I would only plant these in a sheltered spot, not out in the open.
