Scenes From The Garden

Today we went to the garden to see if we needed to do anything. The heavy rain we had earlier in the week had sufficiently watered the plants. We like to check in every weekend to make sure everything is as it should be. Rob was able to snap some nice pictures of garden growth and other happenings. Enjoy.

Aphids are the culprits munching on the plants in the front sign bed.
We saw a couple of ladybugs ready to munch the aphids.
I like the whimsy of the spiraling Morning Glory
The squash plants planted by Ms. Menno's class are growing like crazy!
