My husband and I have a tradition to go to Springvale Nurseries to choose a bunch of flowers (usually annuals) along with tomatoe and cucumber plants. I always choose cascading petunias because they bloom until October (which is a long season for us) and they're just so easy care for. I also love Gerber daisies and try to get a couple of those as well. This year, we bought several tomatoe plants and planted them in a container. Our fingers are crossed that they'll do all right. I wanted them planted directly in the ground, but my husband had other ideas. My husband and I have never agreed on what to plant or where to plant. So, when he's off to work, I plant. It's too late at that point when he gets home.
I do miss having my perennial garden. My garden several years ago was just gorgeous, but because our budget is so tight this year and we only moved in last November, we'll have to wait and start slow next year. We're just getting an idea of how we want to layout a garden, where to put the shed, where to put a patio, etc. And, of course, there's the money issue. You can't buy anything if there isn't any money....right?
Here are the potted tomatoe plants.
And here are my 'not so happy' cucumber plants:
And here are my purple petunias in a window box on the side of the garage:
And my yellow petunias:
I had a big hole in this tree so I decided to plant a morning glory here. I can't wait to see what it'll look like once the flowers bloom and it's entwined around the tree.
Well, that's about it. I'll share more pictures of the garden as it blooms and grows. Thanks for stopping by and checking out my garden.
