Oh how my Garden Grows

That little cutie is a Lemon Cucumber, first one grown from seed 🙂 Pulled it yesterday, and it’s ripening on the counter to be used in future beverages.

I will not ramble on today, these are just some random snaps of my rinky-dink garden. I was in Galveston for the one day of frost we had in January, and it killed a lot of my hard work that I had started in late April of last year.

There is something about being around plants that takes me to a very calm peaceful and happy place. I am truly thankful for every moment I get to spend around them.

Hopefully the below photos make you a little happy as well as you think of your own plants or plant experiences.

Mini clover dog run, this was clay and mud last year – however, recent heat has wilted it greatly and now I need to toss more seed!

I actually also threw some mini clover into the dead brown spots in the front yard, the grass in the photo desperately needs a mow!

Blooming wildflowers – These actually came imbedded in the paper that was wrapped around some hipster-y soap bought at Whole Foodz a couple of years ago.

GROWING WILDSFLOWERS

Rosemary and Zinnias – This area is still yucky as it was the hardest hit from the frost. – I could re-mulch it, but I like to toss random seeds into the soil and just see what grows. That’s normal yes?

ROSEMARY & ZINNIA'S

Johnny Jump Up – I threw the tiny seeds in the soil last year to no avail, and recently I walked out to this little surprise.
