I kept meaning to give this little acer a bit of a haircut, but before I did, the hot sun one day last week when I was busy "fettling" the new door for our fence, scorched the outer layer of leaves. So today, I gave it the haircut and it's always so bushy, there was a whole layer of foliage underneath so it still looks good.

Some of our best clematis get rather hidden by other plants.

Our sambucus is doing us proud this year.

This is my favourite rhodo. It's an odd shape as I've wired it to keep it growing up rather than outwards, otherwise by now it'd be half way across the lawn. It just grew twice as fast as it's neighbours. It really needs moving back towards the fence in the winter, but I'm a bit too apprehensive to do it. It's tortois shell.

It's always the last to flower and there's always lots of them. This is the first one coming out.

Don't you just love white rhodos?

Our new "rose patio," is starting to live up to the name we gave it. It's about time.

More roses are starting to make an effort.

This is the red one in "the alley of shame."

Making some great progress here at the end of the month. It hit 110 in Phoenix this week so any progress is good progress.

First ground cherry!

I have about 15 watermelons all about the size of a full grown cherry tomato

I know actual tomatoes aren’t that impressive, but I grew this plant from the seeds of a tomato my mom ate the last time I saw her in December 2018, and I got my first fruit this week. This was the most gratifying thing ever.

First zucchini harvest. My wife made the best tasting zucchini chips in our air fryer.

Florida's native version of the Pink Rain Lily grows throughout my yard, despite it being an endangered plant in Florida. It's not endangered because it's a fragile species that is difficult to grow nor is it prone to decimation from pests (based on my observations).

Rather, it just needs some undisturbed ground to grow on, meaning no mowing. The simple act of mowing prevents this plant from reseeding itself. All these Rain Lilies in my yard are 100% wild; I didn't buy a single one.

These Rain lilies get their name, because the flowers tend pop-up and bloom directly after a good rain fall.
