back to the garden

Enough dirt bikes, right?  My camera and I had a little date in my yard.

But first, I post this picture from last year, in honor of flag day.  Fly them proudly!

Nifty nasturtiums, can't wait to throw them in a salad.

Beautiful begonias,

sometimes white is the perfect color (or lack thereof....)

Crafty coleus-this new addition is "Gnash Rambler".  I kid you not.  It's a sun lover.

Perky pansies (prior to the heat wave last week....)

"Pinstripe" petunias-did you know that they, along with tomatoes and tobacco, are all part of the same plant family?  I just finished another China Bayles mystery, "Nightshade" by Susan Wittig Albert.  I really enjoy them, and I usually learn something along the way too.  You can find out a little more about them, here:  http://www.mysterypartners.com/China/main.html

And to end today's romp through the garden, a zesty zinnia.

How is your garden growing?  I would love to hear about your favorite plants this year.
