A Peek in Our Garden

Taken on March 23, this photo shows a promise of nasturtium flowers, jasmine in bloom, and our cute gnome peeking out from his underground home.
To the left, out of sight, are two Canterbury Bells plants I have nurtured for two years, so this is their year to bloom. I wonder what color their flowers will be?
On the right, barely visible are two mystery bulb plants (planted in green wire gopher cages). My husband brought them home when a neighbor gave them away. I think they may be what we call Naked Ladies. Time will tell, there are just small green leaves emerging.

Do you like the watering can plant stake? I bought quite a few as I think they are cute. Above is a closer photo of our happy jasmine blooming near the gnome.
I planted our first tomato plant of the year this week, an elongated cherry tomato called "Juliet", which is new to us. Someone told me "you only need one Juliet", so they must be heavy bearers.
Are you planting vegetables now?

The little teacups are so cute in your garden.

For some reason, this year my nasturtiums are going crazy all over my front planter.

I like that you have some things you don't know what they are. I tell people that my garden has been planted by birds. We have a palm tree that has just sprung up from nowhere. I wish I knew which birds to thank.

A bit early yet for planting here. I'm planning an herb garden this year. My first one.

We have a pepper plant that lasted all winter and has peppers on it. That's odd...even for us living in Florida! Enjoy your weekend! hugs!

Absolutely lovely! No planting here yet, but I have plans and I cannot wait! :-)

I adore Jasmine. We have a big pot of it at the base of our veranda. The pot has a frame that it grows over and around. In spring when it blooms the scent is heavenly.

I emailed you my snail mail details. Do let me know if they arrived AOK?

Hugs

Cute teacup stake.
I hope you have naked lady bulbs. They are so easy and so rewarding.

Your season of growing is beginning and ours is coming to an end. We actually just had a quick little drizzle of rain and it is cloudy today. But the plants are so dusty all the time. Hard to keep them clean. I'm surprised that my little tomato plants are still producing even though they are withered. Wishing you a great new week. Tammy

I can't wait to see your garden this summer. So lovely in March.

Heart2Heart said...

I love how unexpected surprises will pop up in our gardens almost as if God has them in mind when spring arrives to let us know how special we are and how much He truly loves us.

So lovely. So do you fill it with water and it slowly releases?
