Photo Friday: state of the garden

“To own a bit of ground, to scratch it with a hoe, to plant seeds and watch their renewal of life — this is the commonest delight of the race, the most satisfactory thing a man can do.” -Charles Dudley Warner, author, editor, and publisher (1829-1900)

Hurray for Photo Friday again! Our backyard is definitely in bloom.  I am pruning the hibiscus WAY back because they’ve grown spindly, but everything else is looking lovely.  My daughter’s strawberry plants and tomato plant are doing well as is the side patio container garden.  We will probably have to water them every day now since it’s been so hot.  I am going to try to keep going with it throughout the summer since so many of you have encouraged me.  Thank you, as always, for reading.  Have a lovely weekend!

“One is closer to God in the garden, than anywhere else on earth.”

Gorgeous blooms. I may plant a few more rose bushes since they aren’t as full as I thought they’d be.

The three mandevillia are really surprising me.  It was definitely worth it to free them from the little trellis they came with and set these larger ones up.  They are climbing and growing beautifully.


Parsley. We also have mint and basil.
