The Garden Is In!!

In March, Amanda and I started tomatoes, peppers, marigolds and zuchini indoors. When they sprouted we had a little fan blowing on them to strengthen them for the great outdoors. These little pepper plants are small, but sturdy and ready to grow! Unfortunately the marigolds didn't sprout and we will have to buy "ready-made" flowers.
Can you see me waving?
This was a patch of calendula that seeded themselves, can you imagine? We had to relocate them to make room for tomatoes.

Mom always has to have geraniums in pots, they always have to be red. We snuck a few different shades in this year. There were supposed to be white ones as well, but I took them for my own flower bed. Just don't tell Mom.
 Our Grandpa gave us these beautiful poppies from his garden, aren't they just gorgeous? The color almost matches my nail polish!


  1. I LOVE poppies. I wish they would grow here. I have no idea what it is, but I think they just like some people and don't like others. My grandpa used to MOW THEM DOWN to control them. I, on the other hand, can't get them to live here. wah. Love the nail polish. :-)

  2. Your flowers are so pretty! Everything that had bloomed out is quickly fading as we have started to hit the 100 degree mark. I am excited to see how your garden grows!

  3. Please bold the name 'Rebecca T' on your sidebar. She deserves it. :-)))) And is her email address the same as it was a couple years ago?

    And I'm assuming she got over the paper-eating thing? I had a neighbor girl when I was little - who used to eat paste. It would have been interesting if those two had gotten together...well, different generations of course, but couldn't help thinking of it!

    I, on the other hand, ate peanut butter...lots and lots of peanut butter.

    1. We have had trouble growing poppies, I think this is a special invasive type that does pretty well. We have never had to mow them down!! And I have gotten over eating paper, but I still LOVE the smell of paper and ink, especially a freshly printed magazine...try Jane Austen Knits...
      P.S. My email is different, I will send you a message.
