Climate change is here and i have no clue what is happening to the weather in Northeast  Ohio.

Somehow the lack of high temperatures and plenty of rain have caused a major growth in all the plants.

What used to be a a wonderful mild mannered flower garden has transformed into a colorful jungle. Here are 31 photographs to prove it.

If one doesn't believe the earth's climate is changing for the worse - then why is it 50F in Cleveland on June 27th.

It is almost a week into summertime and the weather is like late September.


Well on the bright side all the rain is producing flowers and berries.


Here's a few of the super models form Sylvia's Garden strutting their stuff.

You want Frog Boy - You got it!

Two more photographs of the creepiest garden ornament ever.

Half human and half amphibian, this little guy waits patiently for a kiss to become a prince with the head of a frog and the body of a man.

Young deer not too far from our garden.

A liquid concoction of soap and chile pepper powder is sprayed on the plants to keep the deer from eating everything planted in the garden.

So the young hungry deer forage across the creek where meals aren't so spicy.

The Ladies in the Neighborhood Hang Out Here!

That's right - Rain or shine, Sylvia's garden is the Garden of Eden in Northeast Ohio.

This little lady stopped by today to lay some eggs.


Chelydra serpentina or Sternotherus odoratus?



Large female turtle hiding  after laying eggs in Northeast Ohio.The large snapping turtle was working on the next generation of turtlettes when I saw her this morning. By the time I got my camera, she "ran" for cover but I could still obtain two photographs from different angles. We'll just let here be and finish her motherly responsibilities. If you are curious, my first guess this species is a Chelydra serpentinaWhen she comes out from under the plant I will try and get a phootgraph of her size and shell coloration to determine to confirm species identification. Guess this means good luck for the garden if a wise old turtle chooses it for a nest.
