We still do get a surprise snow storm here and there though but it doesn’t stick on the ground. Soon we will have to build a greenhouse!

Flowers June 2016

We’ve been super busy in the yard! Morgyn has been taking measurements of our roof for our big project this Summer and we’ve been doing yard work like crazy! There are these tall wild dandelion type flowers in the yard that are clearly weeds and holy cow when you pull them out of the ground the roots on them look like carrot roots! I planted some of our flowers in the Cedar planter boxes Morgyn built me and we watered them in today. Here are a few photos of the flowers in the Cedar boxes! Marigolds Marigolds about to bloom! Royal Carpet Alyssum Rose seedling from seed! Nigella that reseeded in it’s own container! 🙂 Petunia Yellow and Orange Nasturtiums Nigella and the view on our street! Morgyn measuring the roof! Money tree seeds! Huechera that reseeded in the winter! 🙂 Our flowers in the Cedar boxes Morgyn built for me! Coleus! Canturberry Bells! They came back from last year. I thought they were going to be poppies but nope! What a pleasant surprise! Calendula – In the Marigold family! Bachelors Buttons! They reseeded themselves too. 🙂 These are the flowers we have potted up so far! Stay tuned for more garden posts!...

Its been a pretty great Spring so far for our gardens. This last week it’s been raining and cloudy but after the days of 30C our gardens need this lull in the hot hot heat! Lots of our peppers have little peppers forming and a new bloom appears every day in the flower container garden! Enjoy the photos! Happy Gardening...
