Wordless Wuesday


Okay, that's enough of this wordless stuff.  Look at the picture above -- doesn't that look like tomato hornworm damage?  Me too.  The tops of my tomato plants all had this munching stuff going on last week.  But after searching those plants from top to bottom, could I find a hornworm?  No.  My friend Rebecca suggested that the birds got them.  Plausible, since the foliage on the plants is beginning to grow back.

Sigh, I guess I just can't avoid the tomato blight/wilt issue in my garden.  It's there for keeps.

Beautifully blooming marigolds.

Beautiful blooming asters.

Stunted ugly carnations.  Will these ever flower?

Hooray for those birds that got the tomato worms! Can you imagine eating one of those things. EEEUUUW!

I've only grown carnations once but don't remember the foliage looking like that.

beautiful! Thanks for the pumpkin photo, I needed a sign of fall!

Mama Pea -- One of those hornworms would be an entire day's meal for a bird!

Erin -- You're welcome. I'd rather have several months more of summer, though. Unless we can have a Virginia winter, that would be okay!
