So my company left this morning (lovely visit), and I thought with this heat wave and humidity, I should go out and see how my garden has fared.
I have not had time really to devote to watering and weeding all weekend; just given enough water to keep everything alive.

Speaking of alive, this is what a healthy Bell Flower plant looks like:

 Pretty purple, non?

And this is what I discovered at the other end of my garden:

 closer inspection:

In other news, the kids spied a chipmunk running through my garden.



This is my garden.
Do not mess with my happy place.....or I will call in the big guns.
