It's A Garden Party!

This feature, originally known as Saturday Farmer's Market, was created by Heather at Capricious Reader, and was then hosted by Chris at Stuff as Dreams are Made on.

If anyone would like to share their own gardening adventures with me 
- large or small, inside or out -
 I would love to see them.
Just leave a link to your post in the comments.

Last year our little three and a half foot Orange tree gave us, what was for it, a bumper crop. We picked seven lovely, sweet Oranges. This year the tree has only four. My reading tells me that it is a natural cycle for trees to alternate large and small harvests.

Here you can see another California Poppy sprouting next to an Agave. It isn't ready to bloom yet and I wonder how long into Fall/Winter they will persist. Maybe they'll make it all the way to next Spring.

I found this little Dragonfly nestled in the Bougainvillea when I went out to water early Wednesday morning. You can't tell from the picture, but he was about six inches long and had a wing span a little longer. It was about fifty degrees and he wasn't really feeling like getting up. He stayed there for another couple of hours then left. I guess everyone slows down when the weather cools.

can't quite land
on that blade of grass.
