melon in the corner

So, there's been many a time I could say this or that. But I haven't been so much in the talkative or social mood. My unnatural attempts for the past year at being chipper and friendly and finding new things to do have mostly fizzled out. I don't think it was really working. That is, I can't seem to "work it". I need someone else to do the work. Maybe I'll hire an extremely gregarious person to take me under their wing. The summer seems to turn me into a zombie. I've gotten some things done. But I can't believe it's already August. Seriously, I cannot believe it's August, or 2007 or the planet earth, etc. I could go on.

But here are some garden photos instead:


Not sure why this melon is all cramped in the corner like it's hiding from something.


In my youth I was a practicioner of the art of the corn husk doll. I don't think I'll be making any corn husk dolls. But the nice thing about red corn silk is you can make a redheaded family of corn dolls.


A fine opportunity to explore the various stages of ripe-i-tude.


Ice flowers. I like their chubby "succulent" leaves


White hibiscus

Oh wow - gorgeous! I was thinking of you and gardening the other day - I would love to be growing my own food (someday), am barely keeping my "hardy" herbs alive...

I'm with you on not believing it's August or earth, etc. I have that, too. The other day I was surprised that I continue to know how to walk.
