Hey Mr. Dundee,
Was that the siberan iris in the picture of the purple flower? I would like to get some of those.

I can't believe I didn't plant any sunflowers this year sad.gif .

My husband planted about 40 pine trees and I received a magnolia tree and a bougainvillea plant for Mother's day. Tomatoes, green peppers, eggplant, and squash are doing well except it is getting so hot in the afternoon that I have to water everyday to keep from wilting.

I am considering planting a midnight garden but would have to fight the mosquitos to enjoy it.

My garden at my parent's house looks like very wild.There is so many weeds but the problem is the temperature is too hot(or I should say the humidity) to do anything specially since the last three days.After 9:30am it's impossible to do anything.

My parents have many stray cats around so at least I know there is no squirrel or mouse to damage my garden.I offer to my dad a collection of siberian iris , it's so beautiful.

The only thing I have growing in the garden at this time are pumpkins. Yes, I'm going to try it again. I do like a challenge.

My garden is pretty much finished. I have a few potatoes left and some peppers. We had a chance of frost last night and I would say the good growing season was may be 2 months this year. I had a few tomatoes and onions. The only thing that did really well was strawberries! Ok, fall is here. smile.gif sad.gif smile.gif

Well I finally got pumpkins!!!!! I couldn't believe the difficulty in trying to grow them though. The problem is not in the growing but in keeping the bugs from devouring them. I even had to perform surgery on the vine to remove vine borers. I could have given those to the survivor man to eat for dinner they were so huge. Besides that drama, tomatoes, basil, sage, parsley and aloe are doing well. I probably will plant greens and onions for winter.

I'm glad to see my son is starting his own garden at his home!

YAY Flora! Happy for you and your pumpkins. My garden is froze now. Low in the teens tonight. So I will read all your posts and drool. That's the only thing I don't like about winter. Glad your son is into it. Great hobby.

We had apples for the first time this year.I may have to give the garden up though, my disability ferquently causes my extreme pain after working in garden.The garden is full of trees and shrubs in the main , less work involved. Love that mini forest feeling.

I am so behind in yard work. The leaves are just now starting to fall off the oak trees due to the cold snaps. It is hard to wait for them to finish but I am learning patience. They will go in the compost pile for next year. We have bougainvillea, Carolina jasmine, geraniums and azaleas blooming.

I need to till the garden so I can get carrots, lettuce, cucumber, radishes, eggplant and tomatoes started.

This is the time of year that I wish I didn't live in FL. When we retired here almost 16 yrs ago I didn't realize how much I would miss spring! It turns out all my favorite flowers are spring bloomers that won't grow in SW Florida. Jim & I drive around the country for 5 or 6 wks and thank God we usually go in May & June, so I get to enjoy other gardener's blooms. If you should see a grinning older lady jump out of a car & run to bury her face in your lilacs or peonies, don't worry, it's just me! Everyonce in a while, I just can't help myself. One of my daughters lives in Portland, OR. I get out there a few time a yr since she has our youngest grandchild (a 3 yr old need to see his Grandparents as often as possible) and I get to play in her flower bed. She just got a plot in her neighborhood community garden so I'm helping her choose which veggies to plant.

As I live in a condominium and have limited space on my balcony, I can only plant flowers in planters. Another restriction I have my balcony faces north, so I don't get a lot of sunlight there. I'd like to put petunias in, but they need a lot of sun. Here are the impatiens I planted today:
