What an absolutely glorious morning we had today in sunny Georgia. The humidity broke and it was clear and very comfortable. So I grabbed the camera and decided to take some pics of my growing flowers and veggies.
I planted two trays of herbs right outside my kitchen windows. Looks like there is enough basil for my first batch of pesto.
Rosemary, Chives, Flat Leaf parsley and more Basil in this one. Summertime grilling and cooking wouldn't be the same without them.
I think this tomato plant has grown 12 inches in 2 weeks. There is something about this deck. It gets the perfect amount of sun and shade. The cherry tomato plant has tiny tomatoes already and the pepper plant is coming along too!
Big leafy coleus plant holds up great in the summer heat and sun.
This is my 3rd season in this house and I am still trying to establish beds. This one at least has the grass removed this year. We added some border grass which will come back every year and some begonias for the summer.
The palest pink hydrangea. It is really filling out this year. It has 15 blooms on it.
This hosta bed is inside the fence along side the pool. Next year I will have to split them out. They grow so well. Can't have them out front, though. The deer eat them down to the nubs.
Bright pink geraniums hanging from the shepards hook.
My small palm trees took a real beating this winter. We had 2 weeks straight of freezing weather and even some snow. This palm has sprouted new palm frands much faster then than the other ones. They look like they are all going to make it.
The next thing to bloom are my daylilies. This one has red flowers.
I so enjoy watching and tending to all these lovely plants and veggies. I will share with you my first batch of tomatoes when they are ready for picking. I hope you are enjoying the gardens and flowers around you this time of year.
