Flutterbies, Missing Fairies and Pink Polka Dot Grosgrain

Flutterbies. Bees. Lizards. Hummers. Ladybug beetles.
Things you want to see in the garden.
Little Red-Haired Girl is always welcome; although she does have a propensity to walk all over things, looking, presumably, for lizards or other edibles or things to chase...
Fairies might be found in here, none have been spotted yet; but it looks like a wonderland of sitting on leaves spots, with lots of filtered sun...

The prolific cantaloupe have actually started rounding out, it'll be Farmer's Market time for sure, no way to eat them all (though there has been a recipe spotted on Steven Coyne's fabulous Facebook page for dehydrating them, and there is always juice...)
They are all over the yard, if bugs don't get them, there will be tons...
(it's rather infuriating that blogger won't keep pics horizontal when you want them to??)

Peppers seem to like pots. They didn't do well in the ground but perked right up once they were confined??? (no good pics)

It's been monsooning, the plants are loving what little water they get from the sky. They like it from the barrels of saved rain too..
But, with water come mosquitoes and welts appear before you know they've punched you with their punchers..
And since this is an old town, it is very hard to find a sky view without a wire running through it, darn.
Ms. SpoolTeacher hasn't had much time to sit in the Purple Plastic Adirondack Chair, but it is enough to wander about watering for a nature fix and catch a glimpse of a flutterby or look for missing fairies.
She's been working 'bout five days a week as The Cleaning Lady and a little sewing here and there too. She even managed to squeeze in a re-hem for herself. Her mother's old bathroom curtains were a little too long; so she turned up the hem and added two rows of pink and black polka dot twill tape grosgrain ribbon to spruce it up. Now they don't catch as much shower water...

It's nice getting things the way you want them...
Even if it takes longer than you meant...
(Paint Brush Monster is at it again with the bathroom floor. Wasn't happy with the first fix, trying another one...stay tuned..)
Does anyone have a fix for this horizontal issue?

Check this out, Paint Brush Monster has an alter-ego somewhere in England.
