Bees and flowers and butterflies and Emily Dickinson, who else?

Knock-out Roses

Have I neglected my Indiana garden this August? Today I meandered around the garden noticing a few more weeds than average and perhaps a little watering should be done as well. In spite of that, the flowers bloom, the bees buzz and the butterflies are everywhere.

It is good to spend a day at home after so much preparation and work and then shows at the IndyFringe. Tomorrow I head back to the stage, but for one day, let the weeds grow and the sun shine as I will just spend the day whiling away in my garden.

THERE is a flower that bees prefer,
And butterflies desire;
To gain the purple democrat
The humming-birds aspire.
Emily Dickinson

Black-eyed Susie

I do not know the name of this lily, but they are all over my garden

This is an orange Cosmos.
