Pumpkins, Sunflowers, Chicory, Queen Anne's Lace and More

Early morning ramblings through my garden......

Our pumpkins are growing several inches per day now and they are blooming with such a vibrant orange color. I love the shape of this blossom and the ants love the taste apparently.

Look at that vine go! I can't even remember what kind of pumpkins we planted but we are enjoying the vines and blossoms in the meantime.

The sunflowers are all popping open, a few each day. This one has so much pollen that it is spilling out onto the adjacent leaf. Look at it all.

Here is our wildflower of the week, chicory. Melissa at In the Sparrow's Nest shared her chicory last week and it reminded me to go out and take a photo of ours.

Our neighbor has a whole yard full of Queen Anne's Lace and I went over early this morning to take a few photos. So pretty and delicate.

Here is a photo of what his yard looks like......pity he will soon come and mow it all down because he thinks it is "weeds". I will enjoy it while it lasts.

That is just a quick look at what is going on in the garden this morning. We are going to start our nature journal page challenge this week and get a few done.

Don't forget to come to the blog and look in the sidebar for the Outdoor Hour Photo of the Week! Also if you are interested in a Summer Nature Walk notebooking page, you can find it here on my daughter's blog.

I also am going to try to post this week about how to identify insects using the internet and a field guide if you are interested.
