It’s been quite awhile since I’ve been in the garden for any length of time. Life has been busy. We received news that we are expecting and will be having a baby at the end of May! We’re very excited. Needless to say, we’ve been visiting family as well as getting our third bedroom ready to receive the little one. I don’t expect to be spending too much time in the garden this winter, but I do have a few things going. I have sown my wildflower seeds, but have yet to see anything sprout yet. I planted cornflowers, poppies, echinacea, black-eyed susans, blackfoot daisies and scarlet flax. I also have a bed of spinach going and it’s doing well. The broccoli plants are quite large – much further along than they were last year at this time. The pepper plants are still producing. Carrots are getting tall. And lettuce seeds have sprouted.
Also, the Copper Canyon daisies are in bloom, the indigo spires are still going strong, as well as the verbena, Four-Nerve daisies and trailing lantana. This is a shot of the Copper Canyon, Indigo Spires and Tuscan Blue rosemary:
