June garden

Lots of volunteer bachelor's buttons and hollyhocks came up from the seeds my plants dropped last year. They always fall down over the walk, but I leave them for the bees. And because they're pretty.

Summer squash is coming soon. Squash bugs have decimated our crops in the past. We didn't plant any squash or melons last year so as not to give the bugs any food. I don't know if that will keep them away this year; we'll see. Tiger Lily diligently checks under the leaves for eggs every time we go out, as her grandma taught her.
