Thinking inside the box...

"Oh, how beautiful!" and sitting in the shade ~ Rudyard Kipling

I picked up these wine boxes curb shopping one day, they have served as shelves and bookcases so why not plant containers? The Coleus was not happy in full sun and this corner of the roof is shaded by a large Ash tree, the Sedum seems happy draping over the sides of the box. This is a lovely spot to sit on a hot summer day and you can usually find me here dreaming of filling the roof to overflowing with flowers and food.

Rainy days...

Living in Cleveland my entire life, I am quite familiar with "lake effect snow", but "lake effect rain"???? I popped out between showers to grab a few pics of my blooms after the rain, or so I thought.

Zucchini and Marigolds


...this little beetle was floating upside down in a puddle, I rescued him with the stick and asked him to pose for a pic

...just as I was snapping this pic of my asparagus fern, the rain came sheeting down giving the pic a rather eerie look
