Here is the darker green hops vine today. It is loaded with hops and they sort of look like mini pinecones.
Here's a close-up of a hop--or is it still hops? I'm not sure!
The bottom has what looks like corn silk! Really cool looking. I know you are all waiting with held breath for the next hops installment--stay tuned!
I finally finished mowing the lawn today! Had to do a bit more raking, but not as bad as the lower section. Now it will just have to quit growing until I return from retreat! I have so decreed it! (For those of you who think I must mow at the speed of a snail, please remember that I have a two acre lawn with lots of trees and trimming!) The butterfly bushes are outdoing themselves this year--the air is redolent with an almost blackberry-ish scent.
Okay, back to retreat prep. It's time to do the handouts with digital pics--lots of work but I love the finished product.
Hugs to all,
