Because it makes me happy...Another post about my Garden!

Ugh!  Blogger is tripping...Anyway I thought I would give you an update on my garden in pictures and words.

This is my raised garden as of 7:45 am this morning.  What is amazing about this picture is the sun is shining, because that is becoming an extinct thing.  And yeah, my garden is so overgrown.  Too much stuff in the small enclosure. Who knew my tomatoes would grow taller than my fence and the zucchini and cucumbers would grow outrageously?

As you can see my Zinnias are doing just fine since their being sick right after my vacation.  I just wished I had the variety of colors I had last year.  I mean I had reds, whites, orange, purple and lavender.

I grew my basil in a pot this year because I plan to dry them for use during the winter and they seem to do better in a container.  Plus not as many bugs. 

I love my Marigolds this year because they are quite vibrant.  Not huge blooms but very pretty.

My pink roses are still hanging in there, this was today's bloom.  I really miss my Red Hybrid Tea Roses because they were much more sturdier than these.  My pink roses can't handle the heat and excess sun.  But the bloom is gorgeous.

I noticed my Sunflower was starting to bloom on yesterday.  I got so exited because as you can see this plant is well over my peasly 5 ft 2 in height.  But this morning, this is what greeted me when I went to water the plants...

Tell me this doesn't make you smile?  I was so surprised.  I went with a different variety of Sunflowers this year, because last year's just didn't do well.  This bloom made my day.  And guess what?  It still isn't fully opened?

Seriously, with all the rain we have been getting, I haven't been able to spend the time I would like in my garden.  Yesterday evening was the first day I was able to be out there for any length of time.  I took the time to add more soil and water and note where my cucumbers and zucchini were as well as pick some of the ripe grape tomatoes.  The rain has caused them to start splitting, so I am glad I was able to spend some time working in the garden.  Only problem were the damn mosquitoes.  OMG!  I looked down at my legs and notices there were at least five mosquitoes on each of my legs.  Needless to say I hurried back in the house.  So this sunflower bloom brought a smile to my face...and I hope it did to yours.

Have a great weekend~

Wow! Your garden is gorgeous. I wish I had a green thumb too!

Ugh, I hate mosquitoes! Nasty little things.

Faith - I suffer with the mosquitoes for the garden, but when they cover my legs it is time to go and I wear pants that come to my ankles. Ugh! Thanks, it keeps me busy and fed during the summer. This year I am actually freezing the tomatoes.
