So far, we have a bit out and are impatiently waiting for flowers. I am the kind to put the seed in the dirt and expect a fully matured plant in 2 hours. Thankfully, there's nurseries with pretty plants already blooming that can fill the gap while waiting on seeds.
These photos were taken probably 2 weeks or so ago, and the rains have really picked up so they've changed and grown significantly since....
|Lemon Balm, 3rd year growth|
|Oregano, 2nd year|
|Lemon Thyme, 2nd year|
|Oregano I started from seed, 3rd year growth|
|starters for morning glories|
|Center of front yard, with petunias, peonies, lilies, gladiolas, and zinnia and sunflower seeds|
|Middle son's sunflower seeds he planted in another bare spot in the yard.|
|Transplanted irises that won't bloom until next spring. Also Asiatic lilies, a small mum, petunias, and peppermint|
|Peppermint, Tiger lilies, petunias, zinnia seed, coneflowers and our younger cat. The blocks are 1 foot across each, so there's a lot of peppermint growing there!|
|Lots of chocolate mint by the steps, red salvia, petunias, tiger lilies, cone flowers, periwinkle, marigold seedlings, zinnia seedlings. Petunias in pots, and the big pots have bush morning glories and basil.|
|This was once a tree. Someone before us planted peppermint around it. There's also a cactus, crocus, gladiolas, and weeds.|
|Yuccas have been there a while, and the lilies are transplanted in from Papa's.|
|Mint. lots of mint.|
|Lots of chocolate mint.|
Petunias and the big pot is bush morning glory in the same shade of blue/purple as the petunias
I've added more since the photos, such as basil, bee balm, a 2 1/2 foot wide hosta, and some already blooming marigolds, and an English Ivy inside the house to vine around.
