Look at these sad bastards. I haven't the heart to throw them away, so we'll just pick at them until we can't take it anymore.
Things are blooming like crazy around the house, which makes me all giddy. First up are some volunteer sunflowers.
Some hot peppers...mostly ornamental, though. I might eat them eventually, because I'm almost too curious not to.
Part of my rangy, rambling backyard. I can't remember the delphinium ever blooming at the same time as the coneflower. It's been a weird weather summer.
Below we have another volunteer sunflower. Only one of the sunflower seeds I intentionally planted came up, but I have little surprises sprinkled all over the yard.
And finally, a piece of art made by my sister, who is getting married this Saturday. She made this from bits of wallpaper samples. Don't you kind of hate her? Seriously, she is lovely and incredibly talented, and I am beyond happy for her.
PS: If you're out and about in Oshkosh this summer, you have to stop at this lemonade stand on Witzel. I bought a cup of "the yellow" from them a few weeks ago when I picked up my CSA box. Not only are the kids adorable, but I think they're going to one day take over the world. So you want to be nice to them.
