Birdhouse Gourds

The Birdhouse Gourds are growing great. The vine is well over 10 feet long and there are approximately 20 gourds formed and growing beautifully.

This is an image of the largest gourd growing.

The Luffa Gourds are slow growing compared to the Birdhouse gourd. They are now a little over 6 feet long, maybe more. They hang not flowered yet but hopefully they will soon.

Dragonfly

Except from Why the Dragonfly

The Dragonfly normally lives most of its life as a nymph or an immature. It flies only for a fraction of its life. This symbolizes and exemplifies the virtue of living in the moment and living life to the fullest. By living in the moment you are aware of who you are, where you are, what you are doing, what you want, what you don’t, and to make informed choices on a moment-to-moment basis. The eyes of the Dragonfly symbolize the uninhibited vision of the mind and the ability to see beyond the limitations of the human self. Dragonfly’s can be a symbol of self that comes with maturity. They can symbolize going past self-created illusions that limit our growth and ability to change.

Tufted Titmouse

Here is an excerpt from All About Birds

A little gray bird with an echoing voice, the Tufted Titmouse is common in eastern deciduous forests and a frequent visitor to feeders. The large black eyes, small, round bill, and brushy crest gives these birds a quiet but eager expression that matches the way they flit through canopies, hang from twig-ends, and drop in to bird feeders. When a titmouse finds a large seed, you’ll see it carry the prize to a perch and crack it with sharp whacks of its stout bill.

Fruits of My Labor II

Today I harvested stringbeans, onions, Juliet tomatoes and tiny red skinned potatoes.

The potatoes are small because they were in a container that was not big enough. These are the only ones picked so far because the were close to the top and coming out the soil. I carefully repotted the plant into a much larger container.

Shades of Brown with a Touch of Green

In my garden I have a huge Maple tree stump. I am sure that the tree/stump is dead but in-spite of that, there is still so much life there.

Mushrooms are one of the things that are plentiful. There are a few different ones on it. For today I have chosen this beauty to show off. I like how it has a thick dark brown ring and it goes lighter as it reaches the center. At that top some green slime looking stuff seems to ooze out of the stump onto it.

Exoskeleton of a Beetle?

Found this on the underside of a leaf. I wonder if it just got another exoskeleton or if it morphed it something different.

What do you think?

Fruits of My Labor

My hot peppers, juliet tomatoes and red skinned potatoes are all almost ready for the picking.

It is a good feeling when I can look at what my hands helped to create.
