Summer weeds and vines

8-27-09 waning summer brain

You know its August when: the garden is mature, wild and neglected.

When I returned back to Des Moines after my last trip to KC mid August, I couldn't believe my eyes. The weeds had taken over the brick patio and a volunteer pumpkin had taken over the back of the house and started to take over the patio table and chairs and it is now climbing the house!

I had let this pumpkin vine grow hoping to get a pumpkin, but so far I haven't seen anything too promising. At this point in the year, I pretty much let the garden do whatever it wants. Like these volunteer flowers. I like surprises in my garden!
