This is the time of year that really tests my patience. Everything is planted in the ground and all I have to do is weed, water, weed and water even more. Things are slow, especially with almost no rain in the last few weeks. I thought I would walk around the yard and see what I could find with my camera.
I planted some herbs near our back door and they are doing great and getting huge.We have grapes here at our new farmhouse and Ryan trimmed them back really hard this spring to do some major cleanup. They are happily growing and I even see some grapes! We planted some cucumber, zucchini, tomatoes, mint and cilantro in our retaining wall.These are dusty miller plugs that I bought at Piney Ridge Greenhouse.These scented geraniums are doing GREAT. I purchased plugs from Harvey’s Greenhouse.Nicotania that I grew from seed (flowering tobacco). Cosmos that I grew from seed.And of course, the dahlias. I am in love with this shot of the front of our house. We laid a TON of mulch on Saturday and still have a lot left to do. The sunlight was perfect! Can’t wait until things start growing in these beds.This climbing rose is growing at the front of our house. We got this chicken planter as a house-warming gift from Ryan’s aunt Mary. How cute this this!?! What’s going on at your house?
