    I have a veggie/flower garden. Veggies are still pretty small due to the late spring,but hopefully I be able to harvest some veggies in August. If I can keep the deer out. I didn't loose one flower despite the -30 temps last winter. Guess I have the deep snow to thank for that. Not much blooming yet,but they are growing good.

    Your mind is a garden,
    Your thoughts are seeds.
    You can grow flowers,
    Or you can grow weeds.

    Too early here for much to be blooming. I lost a Rose of Sharon tree and one newly planted Knockout rose. Two other Knockouts appeared dead, but are sprouting new growth.

    Don't write that Elsa Spath clematis off, Mine 'died' but I didn't throw it away. I put the roots in a big pot in an out of the way spot. It appeared dead all one season and started growing the next. Now it's almost back to its former glory.

    Completely jealous of your lovely gardens! We have inherited a run down, overgrown weed infested garden from my partners late father. Its one of those things where you look in one direction and think "hey, we're doing ok" and then you turn and look the other way and your heart sinks lol

    I tried growing things from seed and it was either too cold or we didnt water enough or we over watered, none of them came up. Its now warm enough to plant the seeds outside, so we have borage and sweet peas growing but the slugs love them so I think beer traps are in order! All I'm asking for is a nice cottage type garden with the bees buzzing about and the birds chirping away ... not gonna happen this year at least

    I am happy to share some of my garden photos from this year. I have a lot of shade and things are blooming late. The deer 'pruned' all the blooms off my rhodeys.
    The roses are just budding up so I will have blooms in a while. I had a lot of dieback but looks like they all survived.

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    I am so jealous! Down here if the heat and poor soil don't kill the flowers, then the bugs and squirrels take care of them. The only thing that grows are four o'clocks -- plant them once and you have them for life...everywhere but where you want them.

    Beautiful gardens, everyone. Makes me yearn to go back to the north.

    Beautiful gardens everyone. We lost quite a bit this winter to the harsh weather too. We lost several knock out roses and nearly all of our asparagus. I care more about the asparagus than anything. Our patch was doing really well. We should have been getting about a pound every other day. Then we got a late snow and it took care of a lot that wasn't killed by the extreme cold of the winter. Some of it is coming back some not. I love asparagus.
