Spring Arrived!

The garden is busy now that Spring is here.....

The orchid that my husband bought me for 2012 Mothers Day finally bloomed again.

All sorts of insects are arriving in the garden.

The Frangipani has some new growth.

Nasturtiums growing in same pot as a tomato and pepper plant. Note the water 'reservoir' I half buried in the pot. By filling the reservoir water reaches the roots and dirt does not splash up onto the leaves.

Mammoth Dill has reseeded itself in the butterfly garden. I love the color and feathery appearance. Dill attracts butterflies and bees.

I planted more tomato seed varieties. See label for detail. 3/16 is the date I planted the seeds. I am hoping for a bumper crop of tomats I can share with my friends.


Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read my blog and leave a message. Happy Gardening!
