Green caterpillar, center, has devoured the hollyhocks. Since they did not flower this year, I have decided to give them over for the critter's feast.
This is a lovely ivy growing on the back wall of the garden, and I can't bring myself to pluck it out of the ground.
The pumpkins have branched out and grasped onto this horribly ugly pampas grass that was here when we moved in. We have tried in vain to kill this thing, so perhaps the pumpkins will assist us in that effort!
