Sunday Ramblings or A Trip Around the Garden

It has been a couple of weeks since I posted pictures of the garden. Things are a bit rag tag as during our storm on Friday the winds gusted to about 120 km an hour.

But here goes....

Harvey really needs to get the old shop vac off the deck.

I think Harvey put the mop out hoping I would give the deck a wash. Not going to happen, it really needs to be pressure washed before painting.

Look at all the blossoms on my lavender tree!!

The impatient corner is starting to fill out.

These got knocked about a bit by the wind, but they are still blooming and I am so glad that they withstood the winds.

The mint is growing and I am hoping for a good harvest. I need to make mint jelly this year as well as dry some for my winters teas.

My coleus is not growing as well as it should be, but I think the cold rainy weather over the last while has something to do with this.

My herbs seem to be doing well. I am glad that I managed to get another basil plant. This one is doing so much better.

What is a herb garden without oregano? I go through a great deal of this herb dried or fresh.

My side garden that is full of hosta and some chives is a bit slow this year.

Blogger has decided that I have uploaded enough pictures. I will continue with my garden ramble in a few days.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.

    1. Thanks, the heat and the rain are really making a difference. Nothing like rain water to make things grow.

      God bless.

  2. I love the hanging baskets, are they begonias? I can't get over how quickly your season changes and the temperature rises.

    1. Yes, the hanging baskets are begonias. They are actually my husbands favorite flower.

      We laugh here and say that sometimes in a day we can experience all 4 seasons. There have been times there is snow on the ground, then the temperature rises and rain falls, the sun comes out and it gets hot, and as the night brings cooler temperatures it could almost be considered fall. It's very rare, but has happened.
