After a long hot summer, my flowers have sprung back to life. I thought I was losing my green thumb but I guess all my plants needed was a good soaking of rain water! I am very thankful for the rainy days we have had lately.
The flowers in my strawberry planter got so big they ran out of room!
My purple alyssum is bursting with blooms.
It looks like the Coleus is reaching for the sun!
I had given up on my tomato plant, but was very happy to finally see some tomatoes this morning! It smells so good out there too!
I should check on my green pepper plant more often. I counted at least 10 peppers, some of them the size of a quarter! So cute!
One of the branches had some wind damage so it looks like mushroom *and* green pepper stroganoff tonight. :0)
My "Autumn Joy" (also known as Sedum) lets me know fall is here. The pink flowers slowly turn to red throughout the summer and then turn a deep rusty-red to welcome the season.
There is no season when such pleasant and sunny spots
may be lighted on, and produce so pleasant an effect on
the feelings, as now in October.
