Puppies & Elephant Ears

Today as gorgeous!  The sun was shining, the breeze was gently blowing, and there wasn't a cloud in the sky.  Perfection!  I went for a walk during my lunch break, drove with my windows down and music blaring, and I immediately grabbed my camera and went outside when I came home!  Little Lir-Lir puppy and elephant ears were my lucky subjects! 
 
My dad planted some Elephant Ears a few months ago and pow, they grew and grew and continue to grow.  These things are massive and completely invading my porch!



 
Crazy, eh?  If you every plant Elephant Ears, make sure you plant them in a shady, moist area with lots of room to grow!  These are some of the largest ones I have ever seen.  Maybe it's my green thumb or the fact that we have had an insane amount of rain this summer... who knows?!
 
The little Lir Lir is my baby!  For the time being, she is the one that I take pictures of.  Today she wasn't having it.  Ugh.  It seems to be a recurring theme this week.  Regardless, I took some pictures of her and when she decided to sniff my basil, I took pictures of my garden.  The tomatoes are turning!!  Can't wait to eat them all up!
