Out Back at Night
Last spring when I planted this sweet potato vine I promised myself I was going to keep it trimmed
so it would not be as wild and crazy all over the deck as it was last year.
Well, it was a nice idea but it's quickly taking over again.
And it was such a mess to clean up after it died.
The corners of my deck have open planters and it just takes one large sweet potato vine plant to fill each planter.
Big bang for little bucks.
This chiminea a friend gave me when she got a stone fireplace built in her backyard and didn't need it any more.
I've yet to light it...it's been way too hot.
I'm too paranoid of fire to light it anyway.
I'll probably just put candles in it.
Violet loves to hunt for locusts in the vines.
She's quite good at catching and eating them. ick
So pretty yet a dangerous carnivore when it comes to locusts.
I feel like I haven't gotten to enjoy outside very much this year because its been so darn hot.
So I'm looking forward to cooler days in September.
