I am borrowing this idea from a few other blogs I read: Welcoming July with pictures. Here are a few shots of my small green space at this point in the year:
As the first bloom fades, several other coneflowers are ready to take its place! I can’t wait to see them.
The caterpillars feasted; lots of chewed-off parsley stalks. That’s ok, though, since I want lots of butterflies around.
The only remaining caterpillar! I think these creatures are so beautiful; these are black swallowtail caterpillars.
Purslane in the evening. I love this plant; I love how the leaves sort of fold up upon itself in the afternoon.
Red geranium with another flowering bush behind, whose name I forget…
One of my succulents, with tiny new rosettes along the stem.
