They're here....

the dog days of summer.

The first tell tale sign is the

oppresive heat...

then it's the singing of the cicada's....

last, but far from least,

the back to school supplies showing up in every store, everywhere.

A few nights ago after dinner I handed my boys the bug spray and invited them to a

garden party....

they accepted!

There were weeds to pull and beans to pick,

that older guy in the chair was so fast he became a blur!

The cucumbers are just loving my Eiffel Tower!

I took the liberty of renaming them

'Parisian Burpless'

think Burpee will mind?

I love the pictures in this post! What fun! And it is definitely dog days of summer here, too. My garden is pretty much withered and dead though now. Parisian Burpless! Really cute!
