Around Rock Village, 2021 Part 2

Good morning! Hopefully that is what it was for this wild turkey, who was perched on our (2nd story) deck one morning.

Another somewhat entertaining photograph is this 'volunteer' Foxglove plant, that grew under the deck and through the stairs.

Another volunteer foxglove was in a more appropriate spot, and both were very pretty.

During June, the Oval Garden filled out a lot. (You can see early-season pictures of it back on page 1.) Here are a few pictures of it.

In July, the plants designed to attract bees and butterflies were doing their job. These are Baneberry (which technically is a shade plant but does well in one spot of the garden) and Cone Flowers.

Our vegetable garden is also doing well. We have some pictures of our harvest, each picture taken on a different date.
