|Fencing the Zinnias|
Dear Jeni and Mary and TurtlemanFred,
Today I did a little fencing on the front walk. The Zinnia's and Aster's were trying to take over so I bought some bamboo fencing from Sunnyside Gardens (using the Gift Certificate Card Jeni gave me) and tried to give them a little more structure.
There now doesn't that look more orderly?
After I staked their little hearts out I took a few portraits.
The Garlic Chives came through like champions. Maybe it is OK for Jon to scalp them....NOT!
This final shot shows the shadows they make on the sidewalk.
|Straighten up guys!|
|If you look at the lawn behind many of these Zinnia portraits you will see|
signs of Autumn....sigh
|I think the yellow centers are wonderful.|

Oh, that reminds me. I better go bring in the garbage containers. Sniff. This is sooo much more fun.
