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.

  1. Looks great! As a matter of fact, I DID have a great day in my Garden. Everything here is growing like crazy! My Iris are almost done, and the Daylilies are getting ready. My yard looks wonderful…I LOVE it!!!!

  2. 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.

  3. Your garden is gorgeous..Love the water garden. And your tomatoes/strawberries are so pretty.
    Hope your pink morning glory comes up.. I bet they are pretty. We have the wild ones come up in the vegetable garden every year..

  4. 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!
