I'm hoping someone can tell me what this tree is. Just in the past couple of days, it has bloomed out and the bumblebees are all over it. The perfume is intoxicating.
Every time I open the patio door, the smell hits me immediately. I pause and breathe it in.
This is the hyacinth bean vine I planted earlier this week. Not more than four days ago I pushed the beans into the soil. And look at it now. It's about four inches tall. I think they should call it the Jack & The Bean Stalk vine.
I ordered the seeds from Renee's Heirloom Seeds years ago. You let the bright purple bean pods turn brown and dry up in the fall, then come spring you open them up and plant the little beans.
That is a small blue plate in the background. See how it frames the plant in the container?
Make your garden fun. Put little ceramic birds and such in pots under the leaves.
My pink rose I brought with me is blooming. Oddly enough, this was the rose that was mostly in shade last year. And the one in sun just never took off.
The little sparrows are all that I've seen at the feeder. But the male cardinal flits around the patio and sings to me. Still can't get a photo of him.
I think a true gardener loves every aspect of gardening. I like to go out in the evenings after the sun goes down and dead head petunias and tend to the plants.
It gives me joy and serenity just to be able to touch them and pamper them.
Did you go out into your garden today? Did you plant or tend your plants?
