This spring my friend Kathleen hosted a luncheon and flower seed packets were part of the table decoration.
We were invited to take home the seed packets.
I chose Zinnias and decided to plant them in our vegetable garden.
I enjoy the happy colors every time I work in the garden.
Thank you Kathleen for your thoughtful gift.
I always plant a cherry tomato plant.
I can count on ripe tomatoes for a salad.
They bear from late spring until frost.
Last year our peppers did not produce any peppers!
This year, though late getting started, we have more than we can use.
The containers continue to add a little interest to my back yard.
I love my neighbor's white crape myrtles on the other side of the fence. The begonias are still blooming. My Annie Sloan duck egg blue bird house is still vacant but adds a little color.
It was my intention to keep these mums cut back in hope of fall blooms. They started putting on buds so early I left them alone and they are still blooming!
The old mandevilla is putting on a show again this year.
I had to replace some of the plants in my wash pots.
I put them out while it was still too cool and wet.
