It's Zucchini time!

I picked my first zucchini of the season today! I got a late start on the garden this year so I was very surprised to have one already. The plants are huge, with lots of flowers so hopefully I'll have a better crop than last year, which only yielded 3! - Quality, not quantity - right!

Kutztown Folk Festival 2011

I am regretting that I didn't take a ride in the oil drum nascar ride!
Virginia is getting too old for all that bending so we got her this raised bowl stand. She's trying to figure out how she going to pick up the bowl & bring it to us when it's empty now! Have I mentioned what a smart girl she is!Loved these, so simple, a ceramic top glued to a stick. And they look so much better than the real ones that keep growing in my garden!
How cute is this guy, they had a mama duck with a bunch of ducklings following her but with all my other buys I could only get one.
My guys spotted this one, made from a real hand grenade, too clever to resist so home it came!
This must be the year of the snail as I have aquired so many
Last but not least, a propane tank pumpkin - love it!

Gryphon envy

My next door neighbor aquired this wonderful creature last week and I immediately fell in love! Since he's in the process of selling his house I was hopeful to aquire him myself... He promised me that if whoever buys the house doesn't insist on it being part of the sale then it's mine....let's all hope a non gryphon appreciator buys his house! Did I mention he's 500 lbs!
