Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge: August 13, 2017

Can it really be the middle of August? Wasn’t it just the end of June last week?

When the only flower in the garden is Queen Anne’s Lace (from a more than reliable source!)  … it’s August!

    1. It has been such an odd summer. It started a month late and it has not been especially hot. A bit muggy, but no serious heat. But it’s getting chilly at night and this IS normal for here. We get the first yellow leaves in another week. Usually. But who knows about this year. There are a couple of hurricanes along the coast and if they work their was up the coast, we won’t get autumn The wind knocks all the leaves off all the trees.

  1. That’s Queen Anne’s Lace, a/k/a wild carrot, MrsA. I always find it so lovely… and horribly invasive around here. 🙂 Ragweed looks similar to goldenrod, but not as pretty.


    1. Okay, I was told it was ragweed and being an itchy person (and a sneezy one, too), I’m glad it isn’t. It is still the ONLY remaining flower I’ve got. Everything else has pooped under the endless rains this year. The ground is sodden.

  2. It has been a strange summer indeed. There’s hardly been a day without rain. The flowers seem to be spent, the tomatoes are sad and not very prolific.
