A garden party.
Yep, while I’ve been gone my garden has been rockin’ without me!
I love the blooms in arrangements so it can stay as long as it behaves.
Please forgive me dear so I can eat you on one of our favorite Summer Sandwiches.
Things really heated up when the deep pink-red blooms of the
Sun Parasol mandevilla vine tried wrapping its tendrils around the steamy pink four o’clocks!
Trouble starts when the smoking begins. This lanky Verbascum thapsus is
almost alien in the garden as it shows up whenever and wherever it likes. Mullein, as it is commonly known,
is an herb commonly found on roadsides in the country.
‘The leaves of the Mullein plant (were) dried and
put in a clay pipe and smoked like tobacco, the smoke to be inhaled.‘
(National Folklore Collection, University College Dublin)
So, the parents head out of town and the kids are cool, but the garden is full of naughtiness!
