What to muse about today?

I love the garden.  I do try to get out as much as I can.  Not that I get to do all that much, a given, but it’s still fun.  And overgrowing.  Can you see how many black-eyed susans I’ll have soon?  I wish the wisteria would bloom, it hasn’t since we’ve moved in.

The bed under the kitchen window needs a lot of attention too. Though there is this lovely astilbe tucked away.



The hydrangeas are just starting to bloom. They are such a lovely shade of blue.

I planted this moonbeam coreopsis when we moved in.  There may be enough now to separate and move into a gap.  So cheerful!

Look!  The water lily is growing!  It’s not the floating flower, but the reddish leaf just to the bottom left of the flower.  (That flower is a float to help you find the plant if need be, before the flowers show up).  We put that in a week or so ago.  And there’s a bonus blurry fish!

Speaking of growing plants…



One of the sunflower seedlings is up already!! Teagan was so excited to see it, too. She had a good time watering the patch, and wanted to know why there weren’t any more. I told her that one was here early :D

    How fun!!! It looks like it will be a blooming patch for sure. Hubby, Michael, is the green thumb here. He has planted several plants lately and all seem to be thriving. We don’t have a ‘garden’ or flower bed, but more individual pots. Some air plants and some succulents. With the Florida heat, watering is a must! Anxious for the sunflowers too…..

      One more came up today. I may have pushed the seeds in a bit too deep. :o

      Air plants sound awesome! So cool! I’d love to see some pics of the pots… I just planted a bunch of basil and parsley today… love container gardens!

        Funny you mentioned basil and parsley ..I forgot to say he also has a container of basil, oregano, thyme, and rosemary. The oregano is going crazy for sure. Our first try at herb gardening. I’ll see if he will photo pots and air plants and get to you via email

          Sweet!! Can’t wait to see!

          I have mint, oregano and thyme in the garden, though I need to move them somewhere less in the path of the lawnmower. LOVE fresh herbs.
