I had to go out to the highway and get gas for my SUV and mower and it was just the perfect day to be outside! I mowed........
and watered my plants and they are all coming up! Zinnias and a perennial I forget the name of it now. I actually planted better than that but we had heavy rain shortly after and they got a little swamped together.
The tomatoes have doubled in size! All the rain we've been getting...tomatoes love water......
radishes are up...............
Bush beans....yellow and green but I can't remember which is which...I'll know eventually! LOL!
a volunteer zinnia....the tall ones...........the others I planted are shorter...........I love zinnias..........and so do the butterflies
The tiger lilies are in full bloom....the deer love these but they are staying away so far..............I love them too as they remind me of my childhood...............
My Asian lilies are blooming.... so pretty and they smell good too!
and guess what I spied in the woods? Raspberries! OMG! I am so excited! They are all along my property next to the woods! There's lots of them! I have lived here 13 years and never saw them before.....another miracle! They look red but not sure what they will turn out to be as they are just 'babies'.....I'll be keeping a close watch on them for sure! Raspberries are my favorite fruit of all!
Here's a picture of one little area that I weed whacked....sad huh? I know I need to perfect my technique a lot! LOL! But at least it's a start! After I get this area cleaned out I am going to put mulch in it as this gravel is pretty ugly and sparse.
I only mowed today but tomorrow is Walmart for a few things and then
I will weed whack again when I get home.....it will be easier to see
now that I mowed too. This is turning out to be one fantastic week so
far! I hope yours is also!
