A peek at my gardens

Here are my coneflowers in bloom. They attract butterflies and hummingbirds.

Thanks to a big fat woodchuck and slugs, my impatiens have not done well this summer. By this time, they should be covering the ground with a lot of blooms. The white balls you see in the picture are mothballs which discourage the woodchuck. For slugs, I used small, flat containers of beer. They crawl into the beer and drown. At this point, I'm just trying not to lose the plants totally.


  1. Well, gosh, they sure look pretty to me!!!! I can just see those slugs having a beer party in your garden.... :\ Good thing they don't drive!

  2. Loving the sunny flowers in the first picture!

    Have a happy midweek, Sherry xx
