Purple And Yellow Flowers

Here are a few pic's of a new flower bed I made this summer. They are all perennials so I am hoping it will look a lot fuller next summer, that is if I can keep the grass out this summer. I have a lot of O'Stella daylilies in there that I seperated this spring so I think once they get going again it will look a lot nicer. All of these flowers love the hot sun and it gets all day sun.

How does your garden grow?

I planted my frist garden April 15th and I am so proud of myself I wanted to show it off to the world. I made a trip to Lowes and bought a few boards and put this little 1o by 12 box together.
Then I put one scoop of top soil from LCR in the little box and put down the weed block, and just look what happened. I have two yellow squash plants and one green squash, three tomato plants, three bush cumcumbers, three bell pepper and pole beans in the middle.

It is growing and growing and growing, and I am so over joyed. Hope the deer dont find it!!

Cumcumber, I picked one today. Yummy

Yellow squash picked two yesterday and four today. I will be eating them tomorrow. The next two pic's are of a tomato I planted in a big bucket. I started to pick that big one today but, I think I will let it rippen a little more on the vine. I like my tomato's real red. It is a really big one I think one slice will cover a slice of bread.

Maybe the tomato sandwich will be my next post.

Hope you enjoyed my garden tour. LOL

Sweet Leland

This is my climbing rose, blooming so pretty. Willie cut it down to the ground last summer and I wasn't sure it would live (he almost didn't) but it is just beautiful on my deck.

This is one of our palm trees, and it is already blooming, seems kinda early to me.
Another palm, look at all the blooms it has on it.

Poor Othello

Poor Othello, my champagne colored dove. This is a friend of Othello's, he comes every morning looking for Othello. It makes me feel sad when I see him. Something got my dove a few weeks ago. Pulled his head off through the cage. Was it a little foggy this morning? I made this picture about 10:00 a.m. It took a while to lift.
Another foggy picture.
