I wish things were actually ripening and edible from the garden (other than wintergreen and basil, nothing to eat yet).

Today the waterfall (pumped) into the pond was at a trickle, so I pulled out the pump to see what was plugging the flow.
I have some screen wrapped around the pump to keep twigs and leaves from clogging it. There was a mass of earthworms filling the pump and screen. They must have gone through the screen as babies and grew too big to get out.

It is a good thing I planted many series of the packet of sunflower seeds, as the first few plantings were either eaten by birds, didn't germinate, or smashed by weather. I have about 10 surviving sunflower starts in various places. It is so late now for them to grow before fall snow... we'll see how they progress.

Another beautiful, big blue sky day.
