Have been waiting for this deep bergundy with white edge Royale Geranium to open. I talk to it each time I pass by but it doesn't seem to do any good. It taunts me and says " when I'm ready I'll razzle dazzle you, in the meantime just keep me watered lady!"
I can't get enough of these limey green leafy vines this season. I love the black dirt showing in the planters until everything starts to fill in.
Here's my little bejeweled lizard buddy who helps me in the garden with the look of adoration on his face. I love him for that. It's nice to be adored.
Doesn't he just kill you with that face?
Years ago we salvaged this huge old hog butchering kettle and Dave's father welded a support from old antique hay forks. It greets visitors from the front side yard.
I replanted this hanging planter I bought a couple of weeks ago. I kept the licorice plant and added those little bell shaped flowers that the hummingbirds really love.
The black Iris is starting to bloom. I'm fascinated with this plant. It is even more dark purple in real life than the photos show.
The bumble bee's look gorgeous on that color! Where were they when I wanted a photo?
The buds are more fascinating than the flowers!
Last but not least this is my Mom's tomato plant. She spied it at a local garden center and said " how about this one?" It already had a flower on it so that means a tomato should follow right?
