It was actually a pretty gorgeous day, especially considering that July is right around the corner and is the hottest month of our year here. Blue skies, mild temps, puffy white clouds – these are days that dreams are made of, few and far between here.
Things are going pretty well in the garden. Morticia Rabbit was back, so in desperation, I have moved all my pansy pots to the table on the patio. Saturday night I had lots of colorful buds on my pansies – Sunday morning, I had stems. Naked stems. 😥 And it seems to be just the pansies, not any of the other flowers. In the meantime, I’ll have to see what kind of thing I can come up with to cover the pots to keep her out but still allow them to be visible and get air and sunlight.
Aannnd she must have heard me talking about her because as I was in the middle of working on this post I heard a funny sound on my patio. When I went to look out the patio door, turned the light on, guess what I saw? Morticia Rabbit herself, wondering where the buffet had got to. She was sitting in the exact spot she must have sat in last night while she gorged herself on my pansies.
I feel SO much like Elmer Fudd I can’t even tell you.
The coleus sure are starting to shine! So colorful!
I love how the sweet alyssum cascades over the pot. Last year I remember thinking it reminded me of a bridal veil.
The salvia have started to blossom now, too. This year I went with purple and white.
My happy place!
Thankfully, Morticia seems uninterested in snapdragons.
The hanging pots are getting so lush and full now! I love how the purple sweet alyssum is kind of peeking out.
There will be lilies! So many little budlets about to bloom!
The daisies have been reigning supreme right now – just look at all those lovely white flowers! Aren’t they gorgeous?
I did manage to get some deadheading done on the sage. There are indeed some new flowers waiting to bloom. Hopefully they’ve got energy enough to do that now.
And that’s how my garden’s growing this week! Despite the best efforts of the hungriest rabbit in the place! How’s yours coming along?
