Garden Update

Here’s how the veggie garden looks today:

the raised beds

Note that the tomatoes are all sticking their little heads up over the tops of the Walls o’ Water. Yeah! We’ve also got zukes, cukes, eggplant, peppers, beans, peas, an artichoke and lots of herbs including 3 basil plants.

In other garden happenings, the blueberries are on their way to ripening. I’ve had a great time taking pictures of them. Such cool looking berries with their little flower-shaped frills.

Still-green berries Another view

Here are a couple other shots of stuff from around the yard:

Buddleia volunteer

Buddleia (Butterfly Bush) just opened this week. The swallowtails won’t be far behind.

Philadelphus (Mock Orange)

The Philadephus (Mock Orange) is so pretty right now.

Emerging hydrangea

The big old hydrangea is changing every day with blossoms ranging from pure chartreuse to pink, lilac and blue. Lovely.

Sempervivum (Hens and Chicks)

A red variety of Sempervivum (Hens & Chicks) that is really cool looking.

And if you hadn’t guessed by now, I got the camera I was lusting over. It’s FABULOUS!

  1. Your garden is very well maintained and looks picture perfect. The blueberry shot is awesome!
