Chronicaling the lunacy of taming three acres in Tidewater Virginia, one square foot at a time!
"Gardens... should be like lovely, well-shaped girls: all curves, secret corners, unexpected deviations, seductive surprises and then still more curves. ~H.E. Bates, A Love of Flowers

Volunteer ?millet sprouted under the finch feeder.
Red Hot Pokers in bloom.
I hesitate to let the cat out of the bag on this one....but these gloves are the best thing since sliced bread....thin enough to grab the smallest weeds, ventilated cloth tops make them not sweaty or uncomfortable, and they are neoprene so any latex allergic nurses out there won't have anaphylaxis! Unlike their higher priced cousins in swanky garden catalogues and specialty shops, these easy to find bright orange hand savers found by GoddessSupport at the orange big box store for a ridiculously low price.
Clematis reaching for the sky...
Plant ghetto waiting to be planted...
Found this on an oak branch...not part of the oak...what the heck is it?
Before I came upon this slug, I never knew that their antennae were retractable....how weird is that!
I have yet to identify this in the moth book...but I am pretty sure it will be "bird poop" moth...because at first glance, that is exactly what it looked like.
And finally...the Black Racer Snake that GoddessSupport found IN OUR KITCHEN!!!!!! ew.
