The Garden so far: Early Summer

Hello Lovies!  Here are some pics of our garden so far this year.  I’ll get more specific about varieties, if I haven’t already I honestly cannot remember, in a later post.  Right now some crazy person decided she was going to write 10 posts in 10 days while working a full time job and picking back up  training for running.  I’m actually at the point where I almost have everything I want in the garden foundation wise. Shhh don’t tell Babu or he will start relaxing and I just cannot have that.

I am the Flower Queen: The garden so far

My Shadow in the Garden

It’s my Friday today and I have a rocking weekend planned with my  girls and my family.  I’ve got to get the Lola Bed & Breakfast ( Chef  Husband is at the ready) ready for the overnights guests and the Aquanet ready for the Poison, Motley Crue, New York Dolls concert.    So in honor of Summertime concerts, and parties and pic-nics and night drives it’s a twofer today!   My garden is doing better than years past, but the veggies are still going along  slowly and late, they aren’t giving up!   I am hoping for a late frost this year to get as many tomatoes , peppers and pumpkins as we can.

However, I have  ALWAYS been able to grow flowers.  As a kid in our garden I had an area that was mine each year.   I planted gladiolas, I planted them very year it was the only thing I ever wanted, year after year after year.  I still love them and even carried them in my wedding bouquet. Pro-tip: This is a BAD idea b/c they are heavy.    We had tons of flowers in our yard and gardens growing up.  Peonies are another favorite of mine and Roses and Irises, but I don’t have any of those blooming right now.   We had Daisy’s and sunflowers, and marigolds, and poppies, and burning bushes and irises and on and on we had flowers everywhere.    And so do I… Enjoy and

Have a Wonderful Holiday Weekend Lovies!

Happy 4th of July!
