Do you watch your plants begin to bloom, and wonder what color the flowers will be? The perennials you plant that graciously come up year after year. I often forget which plants were which color.
Such is the case with this one...
Every day, several times a day, I walk out here and try to discern what color the flower will be. It will be a nice surprise!
I've long since stopped trying to clip away the plants around the fairy garden creatures in the galvanized gardens.
It rains so much that as soon as I clip them back, the poor fairy garden creatures are covered again in just a few days.
The morning glories that I moved from the rental house, seem determined to come up en masse so that I do not forget how brightly they bloomed for me that summer of 2012 when I fell.
They come up in the cement cracks. They come up in the oddest places. These are the most tenacious morning glories I've ever seen!
I could not bring myself to cut back the mums. Now I see what color this one will be.
Can you see the different sedums I've planted in the driftwood? Wherever I can find a little "pocket" I pinch off a bit from a plant and situate it here in the driftwood.
My flowers and vines and herbs live companionably together in all my pots. I enjoy the brightly colored blooms of flowers coupled with the wonderful aroma of the herbs. It makes for a delightful walk around the patio.
The thyme is blooming its tiny white flowers. I see a bug up there checking it out. You'll find that the bugs don't bother herbs as much as flowers.
This sage was in the galvanized gardens, being covered up. It needed sun, so I moved it over in the dirt by the back fence.
I keep my camera at the ready over by the coffee bar, so this is just a gratuitous photo of my lunch yesterday. Nachos with black beans and veggies.
Welcome to June! I'll see you later today for Tweak It.
