This fungus is super tiny and it decided to invade, excuse me, grow on my step stool.

Flower of the Day 9/12/19 – Your Okay

Staying positive does not mean that things will turn out okay. Rather it is knowing that you will be okay no matter how things turn out. – Unknown

It Has Begun

As many of you know I planted birdhouse gourds awhile ago and they have been growing just fine. There have been no issues with bugs or anything like that (the smell is probably keeping them away.. lol) .

They have been easy to grow. They do need lots of water.

I knew the gourd would need picking soon as the plant started to die a few weeks ago. I learned from reading that although the plant is dying you do not remove the gourds until their stem is completely brown.

I have been checking and checking and nothing until this morning. I don’t know how I missed it but I was able too “harvest” my first birdhouse gourd.

The gourd has started to turn brown too. Now I don’t know if harvesting it late makes a difference or not. If anyone knows please share.

There are 12 more and most of their stems have started to turn brown so just a matter of time.

Flower of the Day 9/10/19 Acceptance

“Don’t rely on someone else for your happiness and self-worth. Only you can be responsible for that. If you can’t love and respect yourself – no one else will be able to make that happen. Accept who you are – completely; the good and the bad – and make changes as YOU see fit – not because you think someone else wants you to be different.”

Those Big Eyes You Have

This is not the sharpest image but I want to share anyway.

I like this one because you can see just how big this butterfly’s eyes are.

Still Hanging Around

The Praying Mantis’ are still hanging around my yard. Today I photographed 2, one hanging upside down on my car window (picture to blurry to post) and one hanging around the luffa vine.

Speaking of luffas they are still growing like crazy. I can not put my fingers around it anymore.

Here are 4 more that are going just as fantasticad as the first 2. So in total I have 7 luffas growing.

There is one that is not doing to much growing.

This one started at the same time as my 2 large luffas. For some reason it is not growing at the same rate.

More gardening updates coming soon.

As always thanks for visiting!
