We're having an unexpected cold snap with morning temperatures in the 70s and daytime temperatures in the mid 80s, which is about 20 degrees cooler than usual for this time of year, so it's made being outside very nice.
Alex made Blue a dog biscuit which made me super happy. Such a sweetie. And of course Blue loved it.
I got a whole package of hot dog buns that somehow went through the slicer the wrong way. I'm not sure how that's even possible, but they were pretty funny.
I got caught up on my summer embroidery project this week. I think I haven't shared all of them, but here are the two I did this week, one for the Secret Garden, and one for Charlotte's Web. I'm really enjoying these small projects.
I passed this pretty flower walking in to work. It caught my eye because it was almost like a weed- one single beautiful flower randomly growing in a bed otherwise completely filled with some sort of monkey grass.
I had a little shock, thinking my tomato plant was making pink and yellow flowers only to realize the pink one was a stray zinnia that had sprouted up in the pot.
On a not so liking note- I've been noticing lots of holes in my petunias, and I think this guy and his friends must be the culprit. I squashed him (sorry not sorry), but I'm going to have to keep an eagle eye out for additional caterpillars.
Overall the flowers are doing well right now, (Except the dead dahlias all behind me). Unfortunately all the Zinnias have white leaf mold, I don't know why they're so susceptible but it drives me bananas. And I cut a ton of webworm infested branches off of the marigold bush last weekend. I don't know any other way to get rid of that.
