The lovely skies photograph above was taken by a neighbor 2 nights ago.. the clouds and storm rolling in looked like something out of a Steven King movie.. this photograph has not been altered in any way - just goes to show you how beautiful and spectacular Mother can be.
Although I guess it could be worse.. we could be back into the dreaded heat..
oh, wait, that returns for a visit this weekend.. ugh..
Well, all this stormy, rainy weather has done wonders for my plants..
My Pink Roses are looking absolutely beautiful!
and a Bleeding Heart which I saved from the clutches of a Walmart dumpster has been granted a second chance at life.. (Yes, I often take the throw a ways and try to 'bring them back' rather than allow them to die. Most of my foliage was 'trash'.)
But I also discovered a little bugger that I did NOT plant.. nestled comfy cozy right outside the garden's brick edging...
Introducing.. Chomp the Carnivorous Plant... more commonly known as the "Venus Flytrap"
This poor little bugger was having a dandy of a time with the flies today. One landed right on his bud and sat there, without moving for the longest time.. never daring near those dangerous 'teeth' or mouth.
I've taken a cutting from him so that you can plant your very own Chomp.
Chomp will be available for you to start your own little toothy garden, Saturday, June 30th, 2012
