Today's photos are from Deb and Paul Skup. Deb says, "My husband and I have been working on this garden (He does the hardscaping and some of the veggie gardening and I do the rest) for the past 19 years here in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin. We've got 10 acres of woods out near the Lake Michigan shoreline. Our big project this year is putting up the fence you see in some of the photos to keep out the pesky deer. I work full time so there are a few weeds to be found but most of the time it doesn't look too bad." I'll say, Deb! That's a sweet little pond. And I'm intrigued by your house--is it stucco? I love the color. It's a great backdrop for plants! I laughed at the array of bug sprays lined up on the shelf by the door--I have a basket full of choices by my back door, too. Darned mosquitoes! On that note, anyone have a recommendation for a natural bug repellant that actually works? I will break out the deet on a bad day, but it's nice to have an alternative for everyday use.

**** The push is still on--get outside and take some last minute shots, or compile a few you took earlier in the season. I'll be eternally grateful.... Email them to Thanks! ****
