walking around my yard
This Aloe Vera flower is kinda freaky to me.
It looks like a bunch of plantains.
A dusty-miller. I like to plant them in and around other plants
for that POP.
My mini roses. My dad bought this as an inside plant for my Mom. She kept it inside until it stopped blooming and so he planted it in the garden. We've lived here for 12 years and this plant must be at least 13 or older. It's been going strong ever since.
I didn't plant any vegetables this year due to all the work we have going on. I did plant a tomato plant in a container under my front window, just to see how it would fair. Our summers are so HOT - 105+ and that sun totally burns up my veggies and cooks my tomatoes! I planted this one as a test -
to see if the tree-dappled-sun would be a better place.
If it is, next year I may plant veggies in the front yard!
My wheel barrel of flowers. All of these flowers made it through 2 winters. I didn't have to plant anything - just weeded out the dead foliage - added some more topsoil.
And here is my little potting table I have in the front yard.
