There was a good bit of sun around here this week. A break from the cool that the fog usually brings in the summertime. There isn't better news when you've got tomatoes growing in the backyard! The garden is just loving it right now & I thought that it was a good time to post some updated pics.
This must be what it is like for new parents - always having loads of pictures at the ready to illustrate the health and beauty of their offspring.
Care to indulge a proud gardener?
Here are those tomatoes I was referring to. First time I noticed actual fruit!
I can almost taste the Caprese salad!
Look! There are wee Pattypan squash in there!!!!!
Sweetpeas. One of the sweetest flowers ever. I think that they love the raised bed!
Venturing away from the vegtastic bed - I'd like to show off my crazy Hollyhocks!
I seriously do not know what got into them this year. They are as tall as me! Here's a closeup:
Here is a sedum about to show off its summer color. It is a beautiful peachy color when it blooms.
These are my "Flame" Calla Lilies. They are just starting to show their color - red & orange gorgeousness is on its way.
Finally, here is a picture of one of my greatest successes as a gardener. My hydrangea.
I know that they grow like weeds for a lot of people - but not for me. I've killed more than I care to admit. But, I'd say that this plant and its placement in the yard is the winning ticket - and - today I feel like I've done something really, really right.
