This is the week my garden is beginning to die. The heat and no rain have taken their toll. Tomato and yellow squash are the only things left. Shade fabric helped prolong the season by maybe a week. Next investment is a drip irrigation system. But ...

Boy I do love spring. The wind and rain beat up the dark Iris yesterday so I had to tie it to keep it upright. The last photo is an Ornamemtal Plum, my Raini's tree. I love the deep color and how the light shimmers on the leaves.
