I was feeling somewhat depressed about the garden, and then I went and looked at the May update
and felt much better.
It is true that the sweet peas are pooping out, and earlier than I expected.
But the beans and tomatoes, which were as nothing a month ago, are flourishing.
|Yay! Little tomatoes!|
Although we tragically lost the passionflower vine, almost everything we planted in the back bed seems to be taking off.
|Sorry for the bad morning lighting.|
|This is the aptly named Harlequin marigold. Very fun.|
|Here's a zucchini squatting in the middle of the flowers, trying to look casual.|
The side bed running along the house is in this strange phase, with some things finishing blooming and others not yet ready to bust out. It looks a little puny to me.
The aptly named Love-In-A-Mist is still blooming a little, but mostly it's got these maracas-like seed pods, getting ready to burst and spread Love-In-A-Mist everywhere.
And this coreopsis is one tall straggly stalk with buds on it. Bloom! Bloom!
Meanwhile, back in the front yard, the hydrangea that I tried hard to kill by pruning last winter?
Maybe I need to drive a stake through its heart.
