In the Garden: Argh!

To quote a rather famous enemy of the mouse - "I hate those meeces to pieces!"

This is what they have done to my peas.  And I couldn't bear to take another picture of the peppers.  Too sad.  We'll try again to save them.  This time, you rotten ol' mice, we mean business.

We do have many bright spots in the garden though - the first of the cherry peppers are starting to turn red.

And this beautiful sunflower decided to pop up in the middle of the rose garden!

The roses are insane this year.  This one is nearly the height of the roof.
Insane, but pretty!

And still lots and lots of watermelon flowers.  I keep hoping to see little tiny watermelons, but so far we haven't been lucky.  Though the watermelon plants are ridiculously big and busy and I wouldn't be surprised to see a big watermelon before we even knew it was growing!

I can certainly tell you that next week will not be bringing bell peppers. Hopefully some dead mice. Grr. And maybe something else? A carrot possibly?  Check back next week to see - in the meantime, check out An Oregon Cottage for her weekly Garden Party.
