Lots going on in the garden right now. The tomato plants are busy making babies. I saw my first bell pepper sprout on Mother’s Day, which seemed rather fitting. Now we have two.
More pictures after the jump.
I keep adding to the herb garden; now we have parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme (the sage is in the bed with the tomatoes). Plus basil, oregano, stevia, catnip, pineapple sage, chocolate mint, pineapple mint, spearmint, and lemon balm.
On Saturday, we replaced the hibiscus that got zapped in the winter freeze. The new one is putting on quite a show.
Last week I went to the hydrangea sale at Aldridge Gardens and went a little nuts with the lace caps. Finally got them planted on Sunday.
This Oakleaf Hydrangea started out as a volunteer in my parents’ yard. It’s huge now.
One last thing — I found these when I cleaned out the back flower bed. They’re in need of a new home. Perhaps Jennifer will take care of them for me? We know how much she loves squirrels.
