    Lovely. Is it an Anna's that overwinters?

    A friend made a gorgeous wreath with plants from her neighborhood. I've always wanted to try that but would never expect to get those results.

    Anna's don't travel so we feed them throughout the winter.

    I don't post here, but I do lurk and love seeing everyones pictures. Garden season is amongst us!

    May be an image of 1 person, collard greens and text that says 'Did you know that if you garden in your back yard naked, your neighbors will build you a privacy fence for absolutely no cost to you.'

    HAPPY GARDING!

    That is beautiful. I'm so glad you post these unusual flowers. We would never get to see them here.

    Hi gardening pals! I enjoy your shares! I'm sharing a photo of my first green sungold tomato on the vine. I finished chemo in March and hoped through the challenging chemo wintertime that I'd be able to plant at least a few tomato plants in May. I was and am loving going outside to see the progress. Also shown, a little okra plant growing from seed.

    Blooming right now

    Jazzy, i love these. Is this a garden.? From where?

    Im near milwaukee, WI. Here's what's blooming now. A perennial that spreads, reseeds, and has a long blooming season. Some kind of verbena.

    I never thought cancer would keep me out of the garden and in the house due to pollution. I always thought I'd be in pain. The smoke from Canada Forest fires burns my eyes and throat. With cancer in lungs, I think I best stay in. The weeds are happy!

    Gmafoley- those baby wrens are just so adorable. I am always amazed how quickly they go from helpless to independent. I had some baby doves in my yard this year.

    Home mom- love your gardens!

    It's really hot here now (100 degrees) and trying to keep things watered as much as I can. We need rain here in New Mexico!

    Well since my hubby and I are still on the East Coast because of a few reasons that are too long to mention, we planted a mosest veggie garden this year and it went nuts! I have had to buy canning jars and so far I have taken four quarts of crushed tomatoes from thr garden with more to come. Looks like I may also be trying my hand at making pickles this year as my cukes are growing all over my garden!

    That's awesome! I had a lot of luck with tomatoes and cucs here in Orlando too. I'm solarizing right now, but plan to plant my salad this fall. Lettuce, cucs, tomatoes, maybe some herbs.

    Just harvested another dozen tomatoes yesterday. The rate it keeps going, I am harvesting tomatoes at least once a week!

    Sadly, I’ve only had one small tomato this year, mice got everything else before they could grow big enough to flower. Gotta have a greenhouse next year.
