Miscellaneous Photographs From Before Earl.

Here are some photographs I took before Earl graced us with his presence. I had the yard almost looking nice.
Those are basil and pepper plants. They made it through just fine.
Looking down from the deck on flowering chives and three baby hollyhocks.
More pepper plants and I just tilled the rest of the bed to put in my fall crops.
My little lime and either orange or lemon plants and catnip for Dogwood.
My moonflower vine.
My amaranthus.
Palm fronds.
The heart shaped leaves are the leaves of my moonflower vine, Ipomoea alba. The blooms are large, white, fragrant blossoms about 6 inches wide. And you can watch them open up early evening and they stay open until the sun hits them in the morning.
The red blossom is from my cardinal or cypress vine or Ipomoea quamoclit. It's a favorite of hummingbirds.
Know what this is?
Of course, no post is complete without pictures of my babies.
Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Stay tuned for the After Earl shots.

It's a lovely garden, Rosie. Guess Earl thought you needed help cleaning up. Storms have no manners.

God likes to prune, Mar.
