The garden in June
Since I won’t have a garden next year I am trying to enjoy this one to the fullest. Sitting out each night (when it isn’t raining!) looking at it and having a glass of wine while I do. I realized that I didn’t have to buy as many plants this year as I have in the past. A number of plants wintered over.
These begonias and airplane plants spent the winter in the garage. With a little care and fertilizer in the early spring they popped right back.
Same thing for these. I am cutting the airplanes off as they develop and sticking them in the ground near the gazzinas. You can just see a row of them at the bottom of the picture below.
The gazzinas are really doing well. They also wintered over well.
Finally a day lilly has appeared. The cardinal and pink lobelia have just about swallowed it up.
And in the middle of it all, the FIRST tomato of the year, June 18th!
