Back Porch on a Friday Afternoon

I had never even heard of a "butterfly bush" before I moved to Georgia. I thought, "Surely that can't be the real name for it." But the longer I lived here, the more I saw of these beautiful plants that can grow as tall as a small tree if pruned at the right time of year. I love watching the butterflies and bees come back year after year to brighten my days.

A sunflower that my son and I planted at the beginning of the summer...near to bursting...

I've been filling this up with clean water for the birds every morning...such a dry summer leads them right to my back door...

This is the first ripe Juliet tomato from a plant my friend Jamie gave me...thanks, girl!
