The Garden is Exploding

wintersown pink poppy

I'm so pleased with my garden this year. After three years of adding a few plants at a time, plants bought on sale (often for 33 cents each!) or wintersowed, the garden is starting to fill in the way I'd like. Of course there are always improvements I'd like to make, new flowers to try, but that's the fun of gardening. Here's a peak into my garden today.

crazy floppin' daisies

The veggies garden has exploded as well, in addition to the zucchini I've already harvested, I''m waiting in mouth-watering anticipation for:


tomatoes, lots of tomatoes

Also in bloom:
  • Coreopsis
  • Lavender
  • Petunias
  • Roses
  • Sweet peas
  • Sweet William
  • Zinnia


  1. Oh! your flowers are beautiful.... I am so jealous of people like you who can actually make things grow. No such luck with me. Hardy cactus plants know their demise is inevitable when placed under my care. I am pathetic.

  2. Will be looking to try your wintersown tip! Thanks!
