July is NOT my favorite month in the garden.
Water, weed, pick, again; water, weed, pick, again…
Too many tommy toes.
Itchy squash plants host their skittering beetles.
Zucchinis grow giant the minute my back is turned.
Pumpkins? I didn’t plant pumpkins.
Let’s kill the whole thing off. Get the sprayer and fill it with herbicide.
WAIT! There is one non-needy, non-weedy spot left in the garden.
A group of flowers, each wearing a crown.
Pineapple Lily. Eucomis.
I appreciate these lovely, long spires of delicate blooms.
I have a change of heart and get the hose to water instead.
Garden Saved by Eucomis!!!
