Shadow Shot Sunday...Baby Bean...

Due to all them pesky wabbits, I've had to replant my
bean crop and with the hot summer days finally here,
the seed germinated in just a few days...SWEET...

I just found this 6 inch bean on one of my other
bean plants...they are barely 12 inches tall and
not fully leafed out...what the hey...@!

So I'll show ya some of the purty flowers starting to
bloom in my gardens
and there's a reason for this...

To die for lavender flowers...

Adorable black-eyed Susans...

daylilies of many shapes n colors...

wonderful white lavender and their shadows...

Beebalm...
is something missing from these pictures...
bees and butterflies or any bugs of any sort!!!
The aerial spraying continues in full force,
nearly every day in my neck of the woods...
windy or calm, it doesn't matter to the pilot
or the farmer who contracts with him,
the poisoning continues!!!

But I'm confident we'll see the light before long...
many reasons to ponder life as we know it
on our beautiful green orb...
and I'm not talking about the Mother ship
or the second coming,
I'm talking about living life as it used to be...LinkIt ain't gonna be easy,
but it has to change...
WE have to change!!!

Off to Australia to play in shadow land...see ya there!

I love your gardens and the wild flowers, Sharon! Such wonderful shadow shots for the day! Hope you have a great weekend!

This garden is wonderful - an English garden motif fits well with the Victorian collectables you collect and retail. Pretty flowers, and I like that the flower bed is not arranged in straight lines, a curvy path lines the bed. Cool! Happy July 4!

Beans and rabbits just naturally go together. Unfortunately, when they do, the gardener gets no beans!


SHADOW, BE TRUE

My shadow has come out to play.
Oh, shadow, please don’t run away!
Stay here by my side,
Pretend you’re my bride—
Be true to me now and alway!

wow are your day lilies lovely. all of your flowers. mine have just started to bloom. are you in the same heat wave we're having here? I bet so. the rabbits nibbled on my beans too - it happens every year, but I was lucky that this year they seemed to have found them after the beans had a good head start so their feast didn't do as much damage. and beans love hot weather! your little slice of heaven there is so charming Sharon. I hope you have a fantastic weekend and July 4th celebration. and that they stop with the spraying too.

Excellent ShadowShots. I'm so sorry about the spraying...butterflies and bumble bees are really important to our gardens. Not to mention fun to watch. (Those nasty yellow jackets can take a hike though!) I have seen more butterfly activity up here than ever this year...Love it! Happy SSS.

How awful that you are being sprayed and have no bees on your bees balm ..... mine is about to flower and I am looking forward to it being covered by bees!! Love the baby bean - this is the first garden that I haven't grown veggies in (apart from herbs on pots, safe from the neighbour's cats!!)

I certainly feel like you do, somethin's gotts change. Then I wonder how much of the problem is caused by me? I mean, I recycle and don't use chemicals. I even clean my motorcycle with Simple Green!
I guyess we keep tryin' and doin' what we can.
I like the beans and the cool shadows they make. Nice flowers too. I actually have some wild flowers featuered innmy Monday Mystery Tour post on, gues what day? Give up? Monday! Come see me. (I guess I'm just a blog whore, sorry)
Take care and be well.

Peace

Oh your little piece of paradise looks so inviting. You need to start a bee keeping hobby. I mean it. People won't wake up. I have no faith. It's to little to late. People just want the latest gadget. There is plenty of gadgets.I see commercials on tv and can't even figure out what there selling.

Paula Scott said...

I so agree-we HAVE to change!! How disturbing that you are helpless to be in the wake of aerial spraying. The migratory bees are back at the bird bath. I am happy to see them as they were not here last year. What a purty garden yo have and that white lavender is exquisite!

Jeanette said...

You have a beautiful garden. Surely the bees have been around at least a bit for the flowers to be so beautiful.
Great Shadows too!
Thanks for sharing!

Nice shadows in your beautiful garden.

So many pretties in your garden!
