First, an overview of the sun garden. Its a rather messy jungle this year. A lot of the petunias were volunteers, which I am enjoying a LOT. But some of the plants just look messy–either I need to move some of these plants to other locations or just delete them. Feel free to chime in with advice and/or opinions.
Next: what is this plant? I waited and waited for it to bloom. It was a nice sturdy looking plant, but took forever to bloom. I’m not sure why I bought it last year. Could it have been another color and then reverted to white this year??
Close-up of the blooms:
I love this petunia–appropriately named “Apple Blossoms.”
The squash blossoms always amaze and surprise me–so huge and beautiful in the early morning. They almost look like a daylily!
Speaking of which–look at what surprised me!
I am loving these fringed daisies! I bought two 4 inch plants last fall, and they are already pretty big bushes!
A new plant! I need to get something for it to climb on. I was told it will die at first frost. My plan, if I am so organized, is to pot it up and take it to my mom’s house in the bay area for the winter.
And, I got another of my favorites–a morning glory. Lets hope it does a little better than last year’s plant, which refused to bloom most of the summer.
What are these plants called? I like them when I see them other places. But in my garden they are messy and unruly.
Caught in the act!
“What??? I was just SNIFFING them!”
And that’s what’s happening in the garden this week. If you are a gardener, be sure to spend some time just enjoying your blooms. I find that I spend a LOT of time looking down at the dirt–does it need more water? does it need to be broken up? are there too many weeds? And then I remember to stop and look up. Ahhh. That’s what a garden is all about!
