A warm day to work outside, but not terribly so. A tiny bit humid. Thankfully, it was nothing unbearable. I realized that despite all the rain we’ve had this week. the pots in the side patch got only a tiny bit of that rain and were dry as a bone and drooping in sadness and thirst. I watered heavily and hope they perk back up.
I also sprayed the garden like a mad woman. Well, I am a mad woman, I suppose. Either Morticia Addams has taken a liking to pansies, or something has been making a meal out of them. Many of the blooms are gone, just snipped off right at the tops of the stems. So I whipped up a batch of some stuff I used last year that seemed to work pretty well, and now have my fingers crossed.
Overall, things are looking pretty good! The sage blooms have died off and I’ll probably dead-head those this week. There are tiny new blooms raring to go so I want to make room for them, and give them plenty of energy to bloom forth and conquer.
Booyah, I remembered to get a shot of the corner patch this time.
The biggest garden news though – Daisies!! Woohoo!! Lots and lots of daisies! Look at all those happy blooms and buds! Isn’t it amazing? *dreamysigh*
Hello, new daisy! Welcome!
I’m pretty certain the lilies and Artemisia have made some kind of a deal to take over the garden front patch. Rumor has it the daisies are thinking of teaming up with the sage.
Look! Baby pine cones! Twins!
As I was taking pictures, I realized that both of the colors of verbena in this pot (can you see the one peeking out in back?) perfectly match the leaves of the coleus. This is what I call “gardendipity.” 😀
Wow, check out the … the … oh crap I forgot what it’s called! The pretty purple vine thing! Purple heart plant? That rings a bell. It’s really grown a lot this week!
A rainbow of snapdragons! I lost one though. 😦 It didn’t make it so I finally took it out of the pot. I hate empty spaces in pots like that.
I love daisies. I love yellow. Yellow daisies make me happy. 🙂
The other big garden news – the lilies are going to try to steal the show from the daisies! There are so many budlets like this one, it’s going to be a gorgeous yellow show!
And the speedwell is blooming! Tiny lavender pink rockets!
And that’s how my garden’s growing this week! How’s yours coming along?
