Plant Pride

Ok, maybe not pride, cause that's bad, right?  But honestly, we like our garden/yard...a lot. We enjoy working in it, and it definitely isn't winning any yard-of-the-month awards, but I love this time of year when you see so much of your hard work pay off! So, here are a few pictures of some of what I've been enjoying:

On my deck: Geranium and yellow calibrachoa...and a chicken :)

Also on the deck, red Mandevilla climbing the railing.


Wave Petunias we grew from seed, very pink in the sunset.
Fuschia flower in a planter under the deck

Carpathian Harebells--now that's just fun to say!

Our pumpkin plant...I think it's planning a takeover...

My Impatiens and the little Hosta that could after being eaten by slugs last year.
Corn patch, we will have some ready to eat any day now
Sunflowers that grew from seeds from last year's...the tallest ones we have

Two of the other varieties we have, an orange and a purple

One of the orange ones...I like these ones better as the bloom gets more mature

  Our Becky Daisy. That's really what it's called, I didn't name it!

I didn't know you had such a green thumb. Great photos too. I know exactly how you feel about the commenting. Nobody ever comments on mine.

Awesome garden! Fresh home-grown corn is the best. I'll help eat it anytime!

Your garden and flowers are doing so awesome. I wish we had a house to make lovely :( I do think that you have a pumpkin plant with a mind of it's own that needs to be taught a lesson about sharing. The poor pine tree is feeling claustrophobic...but hey at least he has a friend ;)
