|The cucumber is growing and has attached to the trellis.|
|I have 1 tomato bloom.|
|I'll prop up the fern, remove the pansies, and clean off and coat the planter to protect it from rain. I'm late doing it this year. Usually I do it before planting anything in it.|
|I would love it to grow in the ground like this. The yard did have many ferns when I moved here. Over the years they died. There were also hosta and those survived. Ferns do good in my section of the city and grow beautifully in my sister's yard.|
|I think the tag said switch grass. I don't like it. Hopefully when it grows it'll look better. Not at all like the grass out front. Bought on sale last fall. I'll try to remove last years growth and not damage this years.|
|Looks much better.|
|All plated for now.|
|That's an elephants ear. I put it in the planter. I've complained about the bulbs from Longfield Garden but when I pulled it up there were lots of healthy roots. I guess it's just taking it's time.|
|Planted more of these.|
|It's planted holes from flea beetles and all.|
|The sweet potato vine has been eaten before but not by this insect. This year there seems to be different insects in the garden.|
|I still have to plant these or give them to my sister.|
|I love blue hydrangea and wouldn't change them but what was I thinking with the red impatiens and lilies. Next year hopefully a simpler maybe mono chromatic color scheme. Not likely.|
I'm glad I didn't pull the lirope. It's growing nicely. The hydrangea below is getting powdery mildew although it was sprayed.
Next is my poor attempt at short videos. If they don't load you know I'm the problem. I'll try to fix it.The garden has so many sounds. Usually I can't get inside quick enough to get my camera to record. Today a bird sang although he appeared upset that I was in my garden. There are a lot of different birds this year. Although I love plants and flowers, the animals are my favorite although I complain about them. They're interesting to watch. I don't know what type of bird this is.
