(365 Day 143 Photo)
I've been thinking about the garden today, as I'm shortly going on vacation and leaving our two dogs, kitten, and the plants behind. It's like leaving toddlers alone...for weeks. I'm so grateful that my father and sister are volunteering to team up to take care of all our living things while we are gone.
But, like any mother, I may worry...
Here are the Outhouse Hollyhocks I didn't expect to bloom this year. Yet, here they are climbing high against the trellis. Only, they're covered with little red spiders and doodle bugs (?) that seem immune to my dish detergent pest spray.
Oh well, I may lose them. I console myself with the knowledge that I can always collect seed from it and try again next year.
Now, how do I console myself about leaving the animals?
