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.
Sweet Alyssum growing in the border cracks.
Gardenia busting with future Blooms
Anna Louise Clematis starting to reveal her beauty
And here she is putting on her show 🙂
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!
My only Yellow Zinnia
My only surviving Ice Plant
Persian Shield being a trooper after being culled down to the roots and soil due to the frost
Borage that I am surprised is still with us due to the recent warm summery weather.
Cilantro that has decided to bolt and flower after a really hot day or two.
This really tall Marigold
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.
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?
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.
Another marigold and some Sage
Parsley and some still growing Salad Burnet
Bee Balm in the back, and I cant for the life of me remember what the red potted flowers are called.
Anyway hope you enjoyed the show and have a had a great weekend so far.
