Early Morning Walks.

Every morning, I wake up, throw on a t-shirt and some shorts and take a walk through the yard. With the rain we've been getting things happen overnight quite frequently. Sometimes, even good things.

These are the pictures I took this morning.













That double yellow datura...is a triple. :) Yes, it was grown from seed. Wintersown. I cut the bloom and brought it in last night.



EG...Saturday's post will be an update on the potager. Lots of pics of new squash, tomatoes, and beans. There might even be some okra in there.

Isn't it amazing how everything just finally fills in and you have a lush looking garden. I get discouraged when it is in it's early stages with a spot here and a spot there. Your many efforts have really paid off. I also was visualizing a trellis on that chimney and you just over night went and have done it. It looks great.

Just fantastic photos of your gardens. Love the red salvia in the first photo and that datura is beautiful. Waiting on mine to do something spectacular too.

Cat, I'd be happy to send you some seeds this fall. Seed to seed is a great way to garden.

Welcome patientgardener. I hope you stick around. I love showing off my work to others that can appreciate it.

LD, that trellis has been in the plans for a long time. Last year I built a wire trellis and it collapsed in July. This one is going nowhere. :)

Darla, the datura will catch up. It likes heat. In a few weeks, I should have them blooming constantly around the white bed. They are fantastic flowers.
