The garden, midsummer

Just a few pictures of the garden at midsummer.

Angels’ trumpet flower, just before unfurling.

One zucchini plant is all we’ll ever need.

Evening primrose, also known as buttercups in my family. These are weeds on the Texas prairie but carefully cultivated garden plants here in upstate New York. My favorite flower of all time.

Gazania–wild and intense colors.

Himrod grapes. How could we live in New York’s wine country without trying to grow grapes?

…but we’re fond of beer, too, so we’ve started a baby hops vine. Next year, we’ll need a more substantial support for it. I understand they grow to 18 feet tall!

Some sort of weed. Don’t have a clue what it is, but I thought the flower was bizarre and photo-worthy.

  1. You think that is a weed? Looks like it could be some kind of orchid based on the structure of the flower.
