Olla and Florence pay a visit

The Cat loader got fixed today. Diesel is now flowing uninhibited into the engine, and we're not sure why. Whatever, we'll take it. And I immediately started cleaning out parts of the swamp.

When I drove back to the yard for a break, I found that Olla and Florence had driven out. Florence, 91, picked up Olla, 95, at the Fertile Hilton and they drove out to visit the gardens.

Gardens



Took some pictures in the gardens yesterday. These daisies combine with some lavender to create some deep textures.



The rubdeckia with a wide angle lens look like they're arching towards the prairie sky.



Amaranthus, otherwise known as pigweed, contrast with the dark-leaved castor bean.
