Wow, what a tidy garden! Are those labels on the tomato stakes?Donna
Great foliage plants! I recognize all of those annuals, but have never bothered to know the names either! LOLYes, tidy garden! Looks like a big crop of veggies for your family and friends.My DH wears shorts and Ts outside and I go out in my "sloppy clothes" meaning yoga pants and a T. Looks like jammies to my neighbors as they drive off to work and I wave at them... I'm comfy and having coffee.Cameron
Fabulous planting......often we forget how beautiful foliage can be....and I love the second pot, gorgeous.I am a pj, coffee, sort of girl to......
Patsi girl your garden is looking gorgeous ! It is finally drying out a bit from all the rain now .. I have a lot of the same annuals and they have been nifty for me : )Great pictures girl and hey .. men just get dressed a lot earlier than woemn who garden ? LOL
Hi Patsi, I'm on the border of zone 5a and 4b, technically in zone 4b. Love your garden art. I have been so busy with my new garden, I didn't drag my concrete critters out of the barn this year. I have the chartreuse Ipomoea but have not tried the variegated one. Those tomatoes look great. Does your husband consider the red mulch a success? Marnie
Patsi Love the castor bean , I see the red ground cover has practically disappeared and the tomatoes are terrific. Zone 6a for me.
Donna,Tidy ? Oh NO not me !Yes, they are labels from cut up mini blinds.~~Cameron,Hope we have a good crop.This season has been most strange and behind schedule.I try to note everyone of the plants I buy...just didn't with these.~~Cheryl,Those plants look like they really should be for indoors.Yay Pj's !~~Hermes,Thanks to the man of few words. lolAs you can tell from my blog...I also choose to be on the quite side.~~Joy,Yes, now we are getting sunshine more than half the time. All the grays skies sure made for a slow season.~~Marnie,Ipomoea...not that rings a bell.Red mulch/plastic seems no different than black but it has been a slow season. Have to wait longer to know for sure.~~Rosemary,You're right about the "red" but once the tomatoes start getting ripe the foliage dies off... then back to red.
I love all your foliage plants and also your accents and containers!! Esp the 2nd picture! I am definitely trying some potato vines next year.
Lovely garden Patsi
Missy,Thanks for visiting. Urns and pots can add interest to the garden. Potato vines just keep growing like crazy...love it !~~Joanne,Glad you enjoyed this post...hoping to show my sun bed soon.
Patsi, your castor bean is huge!! Great job!!Mine are still rather tiny, but I still enjoy the nice leaf shape.I really like the second and third containers, and then the concrete statue is really cool looking. Very nice. I need to do more of that in our garden.After working six days straight, I'm finally upon my weekend!! Yay!
I enjoyed your photos, especially the one of your husband in the garden. I should put what you have in your sidebar, listing blogs you are "trying to follow". I'm glad I made it here to let you know I am in zone 5b. That's a good idea, including zones, too.
Thanks for your visit and comment.Glad to answer questions when I visit you...Making life easier is a good thing.
