Pale blue porch container with who-knows-what growing in it, lol. There is a Marigold in the center, from a seed, but I'm not sure what is all around it. I would normally think "weed," since I don't recognize it, but it's so thick, and so obviously planted around the perimeter of the planter, that it must be something!
One of my several small groups of Feverfew. The white daisy-like flowers are only about 1/2-inch wide.
Dapples of sun against the 150 year old clapboards and shutters. Hostas and day lilies sway in the wind in this corner of the yard.
No matter what variety of tomato is in our garden, their flowers are yellow. They all look exactly the same. I like the sky and the shape of the wire cage in this photo.
June's tomatoes were planted a few weeks before mine. She has fruit growing already.
I have ten tomato plants this year, in eight varieties. I have two heirloom Brandywines, and two Celebrities.
The planter in the backyard, on top of a square piece of granite. The mid-morning shadows of the granite bench can be seen on the right. Flowers include an oddly-colored Petunia, a Marigold grown from 10 year old seeds, a pink Verban and a bean plant. I have 5-6 green beans forming in the planter, lol. The Petunia is supposed to be "raspberry and lime," but it's more like grayish pink and grayish yellow. The flowers might have one stripe on them, maybe two, five or none. It's very healthy and unique, so it stays. We all can't be raving beauties, haha.
Another Hosta and Day Lily combination, this time in the front "tree" garden. The bird bath and Hummingbird feeder can be seen in the upper right.
Neatly spaced rows of squash. The rows of beans begins in the upper right. We use a method of planting that includes laying down newspaper between plants and rows, and covering it with seed-free straw or hay, usually from a salt-water source.
Beans, beans, beans. I suspect we'll be having many bean dishes next week or the week after!
Yup, Hostas and Day Lilies in another part of the yard with the parking area in the background. The Amtrak train tracks are right beyond that.
