Monday In Bloom

It was a nice day Sunday, a bit on the muggy side but not terrible.  I was going to get out there and do some deadheading in the garden, but when I talked it over with my back, my back just laughed and laughed and said, “No.”  So I just took pictures instead and the deadheading will have to wait for another day.

Things are still looking pretty good.  I haven’t lost any more pansies, so I’m thankful for that.  Most of the other plants seems to be coming into their own, finally.  Better late than never, I always say!08-28-2016 GW17 (3)

The side patch is looking so full and happy!  It makes me happy every time I look at it.

I just wanted to show that I actually do have some purple sweet alyssum in there!  It’s just been laying low, I guess, but it seems to be spreading out a bit now.08-28-2016 GW17 (10)

Cascading sweet alyssum!  It smells so wonderful, too.

It’s like a twinkle in the garden’s eye, sort of.

I can’t believe how huge the coleus have grown!  They’re pretty much to the window sill.

The pink polka dot plant looks like its hugging the wall, lol.

The coleus is as big as the pot!

The potato vine is still happy, even though it’s on the patio now.  Maybe it likes a bit of shade.

This pot looks okay from the front.  I’ve lost a couple pansies near the back of it, though.

This pot, front and center in the little front patch of “yard” I have, might just be the current reigning star.

Still buds on the lily!  Isn’t that amazing?!

I think the Artemisia is planning on taking over the garden.

Every week the lavender seems to be getting bigger and bigger.  I’m hopeful this one will survive the Winter.

The sage sure has taken off!  The bees like it a lot, too.

And that’s how my garden’s growing this week!  How about yours?

  1. You have such beautiful flowers and plants. I can’t seem to grow anything here that I choose to grow. If I plant it here, either something eats it (that isn’t me!) or it gets drowned in the floods or dead from the droughts. The things that plant themselves here seem to do just fine. The neighbors that mow our yard are forever mowing down the lantana and it grows right back (and I am glad it does…it is beautiful!). The oxalis grows back and I love that, too. The jasmine and the mimosa grow back when mowed or cut down and they root very easily, too. But, even those, if *I* were the one that put them there, they wouldn’t grow for anything. It’s like the plants out here have a club, “Hey, dude, if Suzanne McClendon likes you and plants you, DO NOT GROW!”

    We even bought tomato plants back on April 1. They were healthy plants then. I transplanted them into bigger containers like you’re supposed to. They were fine. Then two floods and temps into the hundreds, all all I have are tall green stems on some of them (one has leaves still on it), taller than me, but absolutely no blossoms and no tomatoes. Everyone else has been eating their own tomatoes for over a month now.

    It is great to see how blessed you are to have such beautiful plants. 🙂 Have a great weekend!
