It rained a lot this summer. It rained so much that things grew in my yard (but not necessarily in an orderly fashion). So before the summer is gone I wanted to document the summer it rained and things grew in my yard.
Like marigolds and lantana.
Like tomatoes...although the plants that I planted fed the squirrels more than they did us. But the volunteer plant beside the house (I have no idea how it got there) has become a tomato-making machine.
This impatiens also volunteered.
The crepe myrtles were pretty again.
There were so many butterflies.
And my favorites....the sunflowers....only two plants grown from seed.
