I see such magnificent gardens on your blogs, I'm always embarrassed to share mine! But all the rain has made for good growth and the color is coming on!
The lettuce got in late so it isn't huge but it's sweet and perfect for adding to sandwiches.
And finally, BBT's -- bacon, basil and tomato sandwiches.
The store tomatoes are nothing to write home about but when these begin to bear fruit, yum!
Pretty much all of my gardening is in pots and they don't look great all mixed up in front of the house but some of these are going to the cottage with me when I hit the road for the lake. I'll take my herb basket and some basil for sure. I'm a sucker for herbs and the dill self seeded into the ground from last year's pots so now it's quite a fluffy collection!
My book club friend Laura split her agapanthus plants and mine is blooming! It's so pretty and I'm hoping I can winter it inside without instant death.
On the side of the house, a thyme and oregano garden and some climbing roses. The zinnias I've planted are just seedlings now, but that green stuff behind the roses is mint. Wonderful mint!
Some of you asked where I was going to put the HUGE sun face from my Southern Exposure project. It's so heavy, I can't hang it on the house or fence so right now, what you see is what you get!
Here's one of the more recent Southern Exposure projects, the Log Planter. It's coming along well, too.
And so is the bird planter I did there earlier this season. I do love those projects; they give back all season long!
In front, the sweet peas are coming on. Pretty soon this bush will be like Audrey Two in "Little Shop of Horrors" -- all fabulous pink and white sweet peas.
And so are the lilies.
The iris and bleeding hearts are gone but I have some Baby Grand sized chairs there, just because they make me happy!
I am quite sure the pansies will fade out when the weather gets consistently hot but for now, I love them!
So there you have it -- the early garden ventures in my world. I'm looking forward to seeing yours!
