A Break in the Weather

Hot, humid weather or rain has kept me cooped up in the house for several days, but cooler, drier air has finally moved in and I have been able to catch up on some mowing, and snap a few photos.

My resident Barn Swallows have young in the nest and escort me when I mow, swooping around my head like miniature fighter planes, catching the bugs I stir up.  I so enjoy their company!

 

I decided to see if I could grow some decorative gourds in a container next to the deck.  To keep them from spreading all over the lawn, I trained them up the fence of an unused dog pen.  It did not look promising at first, but now it looks like I will have at least a few to decorate my table in the Fall.
