Sunday On The Patio



Every year I plant the famous blue morning glories, and some pink ones as well, and they don't come up. 



Instead, I have these wild ones that sprout up in every little crack and bloom like crazy. I suppose I will have to be satisfied with purple their dark purple blooms.

I'd just like a little variety!



The leaves are quite large.


It looks like this cone flower is going to be coral. I had also planted white ones last year. But apparently they didn't make it through the winter.



The water gardens are doing great. Growing in leaps and bounds. I love to listen to the sound of the water.






There are at least 10 tomatoes on this one plant.


And a few strawberries. I've added a pepper plant too.


The angel seems to be surrounded with blooms. 


I hope you enjoy your day digging in the garden.

  2. Everything is looking so wonderful on your beautiful patio, Brenda! No digging for me today - it's been SNOWING on and off all day!!!! Sigh. I'm moving plants indoors and covering what I can. And crossing my fingers.

    1. Mountain Mama, it was cold and snowy just outside Toronto but I went to the deserted nurseries and bought some large pots for planting to use as a privacy 'wall'.

      The warm weather may be eluding us here in Ontario but Brenda's garden is my daily breath of fresh air!

  8. I love all the photos you share of your patio and garden, Brenda! For whatever reason, Mother Nature is pulling a cruel joke on us in Michigan because it's been bitterly cold and there's been SNOW! Keep your photos coming!

  10. To get your morning glory seeds to sprout, nick each one (you can rub them with sandpaper or a nail file) and then soak overnight in warm-ish water (or wrap in a moist paper towel and put in a Baggie.). That breaks the hard seed coat and allows them to germinate. I grow the heirloom Grandpa Ott's variety and this always works for me.
