Doesn't that look good? Homemade biscuits and homemade fig perserves. This is the most figs I have ever gotten. It all cooked down to this one pint plus about a third of another jar. I am going to try and keep this one until winter so it can be a treat for us. We'll see how that goes.

I decided to try some close up shots with my little camera.
Some are better than others. Let me know what you think.

I need suggestions for more white plants. I want this garden to be blooming white all year long. Anybody got any other ideas?

The hot and dry haven't knocked us completed down yet. We may make it to Fall yet. Lots of plans for Fall. I did finally get feed up with the invaders from the Bermuda - evil Bermuda Grass - I pulled up everything from the top end of the Sunny Border, double dug, tugged, sweated, grutted, and I think I got most of the stuff out of the border. I also pulled out the Stella D'Oro Daylilies because they never really did any good out there. Too Bad - Border Grass makes me happy.
Here are a few after shots
Happy Gardening! Thanks for stopping by.
