Do you watch your plants begin to bloom, and wonder: what color will you be? The perennials you plant that graciously come up year after year. I often forget which plants were what color. Sometimes it’s a total surprise.
Such is the case with this one…
Daily Walking Among My Plants:
Every day, several times a day, I walk out here and try to discern what color the flower will be. It will be a nice surprise!
I’ve long since stopped trying to clip away the plants around the fairy garden creatures in the galvanized gardens.
It rains so much that as soon as I clip them back, the poor fairy garden creatures are covered again in just a few days.
The Morning Glories:
The morning glories that I moved from the rental house, seem determined to come up en masse. There is no way to forget how brightly they bloomed for me that summer of 2012 when I fell.
After all, I was headed out there to photograph their first bloom when I tripped and fell and broke both sides of my right ankle.
The warrior morning glories come up in the cement cracks. They come up in the oddest places. These are the most tenacious morning glories I’ve ever seen!
I could not bring myself to cut back the mums. Now I can see what color this one will be.
Sedums In Driftwood Pockets:
Can you see the different sedums I’ve planted in the driftwood? Wherever I can find a little “pocket” I pinch off a bit and situate it here in the driftwood.
My flowers and vines and herbs live companionably together in all my pots. I enjoy the brightly colored blooms of flowers coupled with the wonderful aroma of the herbs. It makes for a delightful walk around the patio.
The thyme is blooming its tiny white flowers. I see a bug up there checking it out. You’ll find that bugs don’t bother herbs as much as flowers.
This sage was in the galvanized gardens covered up by taller plants. It needed sun, so I moved it over by the back fence.
I keep my camera at the ready over by the coffee bar, so this is just a gratuitous photo of my lunch yesterday. Nachos with black beans and veggies.
