"How dreadfully Old I am getting! "
Elizabeth Prentiss

It was my birthday last week.
My perents gave me this lovely pendant watch. I love it! It is so perfectly me.

It has a very long chain, which I love, but have to be very careful not to knock it into anything.

Pressing some flowers for future crafts.

Some new pictures from the garden.

The Armenian Cucumbers have really taken off. The are growing all the way up the back of the tree now. I think I am going to need a ladder pretty soon.

Im not the only one filling my baskets in the garden.

Flying Saucers Morning Glories

Picotee Cosmo

 Rosa Bianca Eggplant flower

Can anyone please identify this plant in the three following pictures?
It is a very pretty reed like plant that is growing wild in my neighbors pasture. I transplanted a piece into my garden and it has gotten this big.

My brother brought me over this present for my garden. He even welded the honeycomb into the center. Isn't he sweet?

The plant you transplanted from your neighbors appears to be a type of verbena, though I may not be right...

Thank you for helping with identifying the mystery plant. It does look like it is in that family.
