Good Morning 'Morning Glory!'

Greetings! ♥

I hope you had a great weekend, and are having a great Monday morning! 

Yesterday a.m., I was ecstatic to find that I had a morning glory flower blooming! The best part? It was grown from a seed! ♥

The plan is to have the vines growing up a sunny side of the fence. I can't wait to have more purple blooms! ♥

Sunflowers and Squash Blossoms!

Greetings fellow garden lovers!

This week has been very warm, high 80s - low 90s. But that is nothing compared to how hot it will get! But the garden loves it! 

My plants are growing like crazy! I've been harvesting garlic, strawberries, lemon balm, figs, basil, and oregano. And very soon... TOMATOES!

Here's a photo update: Sunflowers & 'Peter Pan' Squash 
(They were both grown from seed!) ♥


What's thriving in your garden this week?

Purple Delphinium!

Greetings! ♥

The other night, Jon and I ventured into the garden center of a local home improvement store...

and these purple delphiniums immediately caught my eye! ♥

I think this might be my favorite flower! I adore the color... I definitely see these lining the brick retaining wall in the backyard.

And, they are a perennial... which is perfect! (save $$ on next year's plants!)

Have you ever planted these?
