Monday, September 24
Let's take a stroll through the garden and look for signs of fall since it's practically freezing outside with the thermometer reading 86 degrees F.
The guards have donned their formal uniforms for the occasion.
Thanks to an extremely rainy summer, there are crab spiders all over the place. (Gasteracantha cancriformis)
Plumbago, Meyer lemon, hibiscus. You silly plants, don't you know that summer's over?
I planted you from a packet of seeds I bought in Japan and I don't even know what you are. Domo origato for the long lasting blooms.
What's that ruckus? Oh dear, the flamingoes have run over to the fence to watch the construction next door. I have told them repeatedly to stop bugging the workers for scraps when the taco truck drives by.
And here we have a crab spider sucking the brains out of a fly.
And here we have a McMansion sucking the morning light out of my garden.
