I think this is week 3? What I do know, is that I missed last week! But I made sure to take plenty of pictures this weekend. I still have more plants to get in the ground but I am waiting until the weather cooperates more. Between the hail and rain, I am surprised anything has survived!
Last Saturday was bee -u -tiful, so the girls and I worked outside for most of the day. I planted veggies, they played in the mud and their fairy garden.
Speaking of fairy gardens, here is what they have so far. Snap dragons, mexican heather, impatiens, Salvador purple which is a salvia, coreopsis (which reminds me of my granny, so I am glad they chose it!) and some little red flower thing that I can't remember the name of. All of them are just kind of willy nilly planted where they fit.
The amphitheater and watch guard.
Not sure what this is, maybe the beginnings of a fairy swimming pool..
A spider has been visiting the fairy garden!
Can you see it closer now...
The girls spent lots of time playing with their neighbor friend and getting dirty!
In other news, here are the rest of the pics from the garden. Lots of veggies. Some flowers, mainly ones the girls picked out because they thought they were pretty! I did buy myself some black petunias. Very pretty with such striking colors. They are black with gold stripes. I had never seen them in those colors so I bought a pack and stuck them in a planter with the purple ones!
lettuce in the front yard. This lettuce patch suffered a beat down from the hail the other night, right after this picture was taken. Literally an hour after this picture it was shredded and matted up in the mud from the hail and rain. It seems to be making a comeback...
I just love pea flowers, they are soooo pretty!
tomatoes (I have about 4 more to be planted) these are mostly heirloom varieties, with one early girl. Red zebra, which are pretty, rosso scillian and german pink. One of the german pinks got shredded by hail, so I pulled it and replanted a tomato plant which I failed to mark. if I had to guess which variety it was, I would guess german pink base don the leaves. Once the tomatoes arrive, I can tell for sure!
okra, with 4 more to plant also, oh and weeds!
hmmmm, I wonder why I only took one picture of the pepper plants. I have like 11 planted...
not garden related, but clothes on the line, which I try to do exclusively on weekends
my favorite part of summer, sun tea!
And finally, the hail that damaged most of our city the other day.
my poor lettuce!
Whew, that was a lot!
